Hello, hello! I’m sure you’re all settling back into the workweek after a nice holiday last week, as am I. Lots to catch up on!
In addition to getting a lot of sleep and relaxation time in in Pittsburgh over the last week, Matt and I also got in some great workouts. On Thanksgiving morning, before our delicious feast, we did our own snowy turkey trot.
It was really cold out but beautiful.
It felt like we had the whole world to ourselves – no one was out on the roads and the snow made everything seem quiet and peaceful.
I was tempted to stop and go sledding…
We ended up covering 5 VERY hilly miles in 43:07. I was pumped about our pace given all the hills! Matt was responsible for the speed – he plays soccer a couple times a week and it keeps him speedy! I’ve been finding it hard to run fast lately after all the marathon training long, slow runs. This winter will be my time to work on speed again!
Another workout highlight from Thanksgiving break was hitting up the gym for a CrossFit-esque workout with Matt and his brother Drew. We spent about an hour lifting various heavy things and finished it off with a little basketball, just for fun (we’re all terrible at it). I rocked my new Reebok CrossFit Nano Speed custom shoes for the occasion!
Remember when I wrote last month about how you can design your own shoes on Reebok’s website? I was given the opportunity to try it out as part of my partnership with them (check out that post for a full review of the process), and my custom shoes arrived last week. They came out so cool and it was fun to make them on the site, too!
And now – Reebok is offering one lucky fANNEtastic food reader the chance to win a gift card to design your own custom shoes, too!
