TGIF! + Cans for Comments

Wow, 6 comments yesterday. I hope that means you were all thoroughly enjoying your Thanksgiving and spending time away from the computer. I hope everyone who has a long weekend is enjoying every minute of it. I can't wait to get my own (measly two day) weekend started. It has been one of those weeks.

Just a note that I had planned on hosting Cans for Comments every Friday in December, but Mel was kind enough to mention it on her post today so we'll go ahead and kick it off a week early. One food donation for every five comments left today! Mel is doing the same thing, so check out her post today too: Giving Rather Than Receiving.

Last night I had a cushion of time surrounding my Spin class so I took advantage and racked up a few extra HBBC points. I stuffed my Nathan Intensity Hydration Pack for Women with a towel and change of clothes and ran to and from the gym for a total of just over 5K. It was an easy way to squeeze in a little more activity and I'm going to try to do it every week.

HBBC Update

Thursday:
run 3.4mi = 3.4 pts
1h Spin class = 4 pts
F/V = 1 pt



Have a great weekend!

I love running to and from places- that's how I do all my errands. Getting in the extra miles is worth the weird looks when you show up somewhere sweating bullets (or is that only me?)!

Kelly said...

I hope you enjoy your 2 day weekend :)

Aneta said...

I was bored and went through some of your old posts on your blog.

lindsay said...

but yes, i wasn't able to blog/read/comment much since tuesday so i'm wayyy behind!

trialsoftraining said...

ok so whats the consensus from up there?? I'm Finally catching up on blogs after a Looong weekend away from the comp :) so, i hope this still counts! (plus it brings you to an even 30 i think..haha)

Nice run to/from! I do this with my group runs on the Mall a lot - get off the metro a few stops early to get in a little warm up :)
