So after a race I always wonder when/if I should transition to a different thing. Usually I would be sick of running, ready to hang up my running shoes and pull out the squat bar. But this year I’ve been making such good progress with running and I kind of want to keep going! But I’m also aware that my little powerlifting comp in May is not far off and I have a LOT of work to do to get to where I want to be. Maybe a hybrid approach will work, at least while I’m slowly easing back into lifting?
Today I took advantage of the beautiful day to get out for a chill 4-miler. My hips are still unhappy, so I spent some time to stretch really well afterward (I’ve been neglecting that).
Since Thanksgiving is over, our local grocery store had turkeys discounted from $1.59/lb to $0.59/lb (~$12 for a 20lb turkey, not bad!). I’ve never cooked a turkey, but I think I’d like to host my inlaws for Thanksgiving next year so a test run would be useful– plus, we love turkey! The big ol’ bird is now dry-brining in the fridge and we’ll cook it tomorrow, since my husband’s going to be home. Hopefully it turns out okay and we can find room for all the leftovers.
