Inquiring minds want to know, What Happened on Thanksgiving with the Cracker Barrel Dinner?
Thursday called for my regular 7 mile tennis ball run thru the woods. Since I didn't have to go to work, I slept in a little longer run anyway. I managed to stretch the 7 miles into 9 since I felt good and had the time. After a shower and breakfast I power washed my pavers so I have a clean driveway! I made a loaf of bread to take with me along with 2 bottles of 2002 Coppola chardonnay. The dinner was what you would expect, dry dry and dry with dry cornbread stuffing and dry cornbread rolls. So everyone sat around and drank a lot of wine!
Friday was the usual 25 mile ride with Tony sans Tony. I was one of the unfortunate ones that had to work. The market was open so we had to be at work. I swam at lunch and on my way home I bought a turkey from the Target Superstore with a coupon and instant saving the 10 lb bird cost $4.54.
Saturday was the long run day of the weak, this weak I took a new route. I ran out to Florida Gulf Coast University, around the campus and back home, 16 miles. After shower and breakfast I made some more bread and an apple pie. In the afternoon I invited J over for tree trimming and dinner (steaks, salad, bake potatoes, and Oldman's apple pie). Pics to follow. The tree looks pretty good, if I do say so myself.
Sunday saw the return of Florida humidity. I did the long ride of the weak to Coconut Point (no dolphins this weak), back then up to the new airport and back home, 65 miles. When I got home I started my turkey for my own thanksgiving dinner. Yes I had the stuffing, mashed garlic potatoes, carrots, gravy, cranberry sauce (whole cranberries) and of course leftover apple pie with ice cream. So it might have been late but it was tasty! Now I have leftovers!!!! Hurray!
Run 32 miles
Swim 3,000 meters
Next weak I'll try to get my regular swim routine, now that the gulf water is colder I will have to go to the pools more rather than the beach unless I breakout the wet suit.
