Stats taken after run and before getting something to eat, %water 67.8, muscle 37.5, bone 3.9.

Happy Thanksgiving! As I'm spending the afternoon at my brother's and it was relatively nice-looking outside, decided to get in a longer run around Ft D. Temps in the mid-30s with a bit of wind so I was in cold weather gear once again, but it wasn't all that bad and I felt toasty when I was done. Decided since I had to the time to run a bit farther today than the normal loop. Thought about doing 9+ but wasn't sure I had that much time. I started off slow but eventually got down to decent zone 2 pace. Enjoyable holiday run!

Beginning to wonder if these shoes are an issue with my right knee area and so I think I'm going to look into some maximist shoes such as the Hokas. The Cliftons got good reviews and think I'll go to the local shoe store and see if I can try on a pair. Been reluctant to try these because they really look like running platform shoes, but perhaps they'll do [...]

What a terrible run. Went out faster than I should have, which was really ok b/c I recovered on a downhill, but then took a wrong turn. Was 7OA at that point. Just jogged it in after that.

One more day and Darren will be home. We've been able to video chat most days so that's nice. I can tell he misses us.  I miss him
Miss Felicity did not sleep last night.  She's going to be tired tonight! I am not too bad today - she was really cute, not too fussy, just away and after a while i just turned on the lights and we played a bit. Then she passed out hard. But that was already 4 am.  Yikes!

I had a pretty awesome day. I slept in, made cranberry sauce, sweet potato casserole, cheddar roll dough and picked up a gluten free chocolate cream pie and some gluten free cake balls (!). Got my nails done and had dinner with my family and Brian. Perfect.

Didn't run, instead went to happy hour that lasted 6 hours.  Can we say bad choices?

This swim felt great. Nice even pace, right @ 1' (+/- 1") on every 50 yds.
Stroke length was consistent for the entire 1000 yds. Right around 18 every 25 yds. didn't go below 17 (maybe there was a 16 in there somewhere) or above 19.

I'll be scarce here the next few days: T-day at a friends house which means cooking in the am. I'll be taking a ton of food. There is going to be up to 30 folks there. I LOVE holidays with Not MY FAMILY Drama- like the old saying "Not my Monkeys, Not my Circus".  Then the next couple of days will be spend doing the annual decorating. It takes a few days to complete. Yes, we go overboard. Okay, I go overboard. Its just that our house cries out to be decorated.
Got my loaner bike back last night, I will do my weekend ride on it, though it will be on the trainer. No way in hell I am going to get on any bike, let alone a tri bike and ride on these roads with tourons and rednecks.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all. Without being too mushy, I am thankful I discovered this site and all you wonderful, supportive and inspiring people.

I've fallen off the wagon with strength training again so this is probably going to hurt. I was feeling it by the end of the video.
