It has already been a very exciting day around here and we have yet to have out Thanksgiving dinner. The day started with Sadie’s first time being a sled dog. She is such a great runner and an awesome puller when we are running her on the bike so we thought we should give mushing a try.
My sister is a sprint musher and offered to take Sadie on a training run. She wasn’t too thrilled to be in the dog box:
And took to licking the metal grate:
I think she has a few screws loose.
Eventually she got to take her turn in the harness and apparently ran like a beast!!
My sister shot some video out on the trail so I will have to figure out how to post that.
After that Joe and I headed to the gym.
I warmed up (literally because I was freezing after standing outside for an hour) with 10 minutes of incline walking on the treadmill. When I was done with that I completed this circuit:
In case you can’t tell, you complete 3 rounds of each circuit, then run 1 mile. I used a 40 pound barbell for the Squat & Press and a 30 pound kettle bell for the Kettle Bell Swings.
My mile times:
Mile 1 = 8:36
Mile 2 = 8:08
Mile 3 = 8:06
This entire circuit took me 65 minutes.
I must be doing something wrong because the last few times that I have been doing squats with the barbell, I have left the gym hobbling because I have tweaked my back. It is my usual disc issue in the lower back which is not only painful but frustrating.
Well, I hope everyone’s Thanksgiving was rest full and full of family and good food. Joe, Sadie and I are about to head up to my parents house to have our own Thanksgiving and I’m looking forward to it!
Best wishes to you all!
