To Turkey Trot or not to Turkey Trot… are you doing one this week?
We’re hosting Thanksgiving this year but everyone is coming Thursday night or Friday morning so I might squeeze in the local 8k race.
Here’s the workout recap from this week:
Sunday: 15 minute strength circuit
Monday: 5 miles (8:20 pace)
Tuesday: 45 minute spin
Wednesday: 7 miles with ladder intervals (400m- 1:34, 800m- 3:10, 1200m- 4:56, 800m- 3:09, 400m- 1:29 <— 5:56 pace!)
Thursday: 45 minute mock spin class at home + 75 push ups and plank
Saturday: 16 miles (8:42 pace)
Yesterday’s 16 miles was a new post-baby distance record for me! I’m still following the plan for Houston but am undecided if I’ll run it or not.
It will be an easier meal planning week with Thanksgiving and lots of leftovers. I’m still working out some of the side dishes for Thursday. I’d like to experiment but I also know family will want the usual dishes. Here’s our plan:
Sunday: Quinoa Minestrone
Monday: Black bean spaghetti with turkey sausage, tomatoes and fresh parmesan
Thursday: Beef stew and skillet cornbread
Friday: Celebrating Thanksgiving
Saturday: Turkey wild rice soup made from leftovers

Do you have traditional Thanksgiving food or do you like to mix it up?
Are you running a Turkey Trot on Thursday?
