I hope my readers who celebrate American Thanksgiving enjoyed their holiday, had their fill of turkey and goodies, and had a restful long weekend! (I hope the folks elsewhere had a nice weekend as well!)
I had some pleasant activity over the weekend, nothing too structured but really enjoyable. On Friday my partner and I took advantage of the free weights in his parents’ basement. They worked well enough and I got an adequate workout, but I missed all the fancy stuff at my gym.
On Sunday I talked my partner into going for a short hike. We went to the trail nearby and walked around for an hour and a half, enjoying the chilly weather. I totally overdressed– I had to shed layers to stay comfortable– hopefully I’ve learned my lesson. It would be cool if we could make hiking a regular activity together; I really enjoy it and would love to start doing longer day hikes.
I think my feet are back to baseline so now I need to hunt down a pair of new shoes. (Still.) Maybe this afternoon I’ll have time to head to the running store and get fitted… I liked my Nikes but they changed the model (every year, sigh) and I had enough problems with heel slippage that I’d like to try something different, maybe a wider toe box and narrower heel…
