Running and Eating

Not this bad…I don’t do both at the same time!

This seems to be a familiar topic.

I am not delusional to think that a run can burn off the huge quantities of fattening food that I have been eating. But things would be a lot worse if I were a couch potato.

  • Thursday – Thanksgiving Lunch

turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberries, run, bread pudding

  • 1 walk before and 1 walk and a 4 mile run after – I don’t think I even burned off the homemade bread pudding (not pictured.)

  • Friday – Holiday Party

lasagna, chicken, roast beef, veggies, baked potato (not pictured)

I had the pecan pie & chocolate cake

  • No exercise at all 😦 (I’ll blame the rain.)
  • Saturday – Dinner out with Lake George friends

I added a sweet potato instead of pasta


pumpkin cheesecake – yum!

  • 8 mile run beforehand on the Nisky Bike Path 🙂

started out cloudy but then the sun came out


now that the leaves have fallen, there are better views of the Mohawk River


happy to be done …NO FOOT PAIN – YAY! more fun last weekend running with others but they were running today when it was COLDER, cloudier & WINDIER!!!!

  • Just another “normal” Saturday…

I have the oatmeal first and only run 8 miles LOL

  • Sunday – Dinner out with a few tennis friends & former coach

Maybe I’ll order a salad…

Happy Running!  Are you able to avoid holiday over-eating?
