Today, the day after Thanksgiving, was a day of rest and recovery. Recovery from my race and recovery from a big ‘ol meal.
I started the day with some french toast:
I used two slices of french bread dipped in a mixture of two scrambled eggs, milk, vanilla and brown sugar.
After breakfast, my dad and I went to a local camera store to check out some DSLRs. I’ve been using my dad’s for now but I’m hoping to get one of my own for Christmas. We looked at a Nikon 3100 and 5100, a Canon T3I and a Pentax K30. I really liked the Pentax the best, so hopefully Santa will be nice to me this year!
After lunch, I did a short 2ish mile run around my neighborhood. It was SO windy and it was chilling me to the bone. I was happy to be running a recovery run, slow and steady. After that I did some strength training: some planks and upper body work with 10-pound free weights. It wasn’t very fun; I don’t like strength training. But I know it helps keep me injury-free, so I’m going to try to stick with it.
After a quick shower, it was lunch time…or leftovers time:
After lunch, I did some blogging and then headed over to Grandma’s (on my mom’s side) house with Ryan. We hung out and watched some football for a little while. It was nice to see her again after a long time away.
Ryan and I braved Kohl’s on the way home because I wanted another box of the holiday coffee K-cups for my Keurig. We bought two boxes: one for home and one for me, plus a bag of peppermint bark because why not? Excited to drink more holiday coffee 🙂
Dinner was a disputed sweet potato turkey hash. My dad and I wanted it…no one else did. So we made some!
What did you have today with your Thanksgiving leftovers?
