Three Things Thursday

1) November is typically a month of recovery for me. After spending the entire spring and summer training it was always nice to just kick back and do nothing. But after reading the November recaps for a majority of you guys, I feel like a slacker! Some of you (Crazy Canadian) are even closing in on 2010 running miles in 2010, I'm not sure I drove that many miles!

2) Everyone knows that lean muscle burns more calories, so I've been spending more time in the gym pumping iron. I plan on purchasing some of those MC Hammer zebra parachute pants and spaghetti string tank tops to wear. The down side to the gym workouts is the soreness that I encounter each morning (D.O.M.S.).......... It's hell getting old.

3) A sad note. I just found out that the runner that went down at our local Turkey trot, passed yesterday. He had triple bypass surgery on Monday but it didn't help, he was 52 years old.

You know you love my crazy Canaian antics! Just wait til I start logging my polar bear swim distances!!!

Make sure you get your spaghetti string spandex on fluorescent yellow!

Sorry to hear about that the Turkey Trot runner didn't make it. Sad indeed. :(

Sorry to hear about the runner. Sad news.

Strength training- that's great! Remember when people wore those Hammer pants outside the gym? Wowza.
