Happy Sunday! I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I definitely enjoyed #allthefood and have zero regrets because it was all so yummy. This week was a little busy with the holiday but I still managed to get in all of my workouts. Here’s how the week went for me.
Monday, November 19
Kickboxing Class (60 mins).
I went back to the Monday night kickboxing class and it didn’t disappoint. It’s such a good workout and makes me realize that I have a lot of work to do when it comes to endurance!
Tuesday, November 20
Strength Training (60 mins).
I love this class because it’s a total body workout. I always leave sore, but satisfied.
Wednesday, November 21
3 mile run + ActivMotion Bar workout.
This was my first workout with the ActivMotion Bar and I really enjoyed it! I have the 10 lb bar so I did a quick upper body workout. If you’re interested in trying it out, they are running a huge holiday sale right now. You can get 40% off with code bf2018.

Westchester Thanksgiving Turkey Trot 5K
It wasn’t just cold, it was cold AF! The “real feel” was around 3 degrees. I thought about bailing on the race but I only get to wear my turkey costume once a year so decided to go for it, lol. This was our first time running the race but it was pretty good and well organized too!
Friday, November 23
6 mile run.
While I had originally planned to #OptOutside, the real feel temperature was -1 when I woke up in the morning. I just couldn’t deal with 2 days in a row or running in those temps so I opted for the treadmill.
Saturday, November 24
Spinning (45 mins).
I got in a quick Peloton spinning class before heading down to Washington, DC to spend the weekend with friends.
We went to this awesome restaurant called Filomena for dinner and it was SO good. The restaurant was also really festive and decorated for the holiday.
Sunday, November 25
Rest Day and enjoying Washington, DC with my friends!
Total Weekly Mileage: 12 miles
Summary: 3 runs, 1 spinning class, 1 Kickboxing Class, 2 Strength Training workouts, 2 lunchtime walks
Grade This Week – A
On Thursday I earned the “Frosty” badge on my Garmin because I ran in below freezing temperatures lol. I literally couldn’t feel my feet for the first half mile of the race. It was pretty brutal.
Also on Thursday night I felt like this after eating but I have no regrets.
Next weekend is Rock n Roll San Antonio. I’m sure I’ll get through the race but my training could have been better. Oh well, I’m not running it for a PR anyway so no big deal. I’ve never been to San Antonio so I’m excited to see what the city has to offer. I’ll also be on the hunt for a good BBQ restaurant as well, lol.
How was your week? Did you have a good Thanksgiving holiday? How’s the weather in your part of the country?
