We’re back from a lovely four-day break at Lake Tahoe! I’d planned a little Thanksgiving post but our otherwise perfect cabin had very limited wi-fi, so I spent most of the time offline which was weird but ultimately good! But you know what I’m thankful for…my family, my health, running, the beauty of Tahoe and you lovely lot who read my blog.
It also appears, from catching up on Twitter, that I’m the only running blogger who didn’t run a Turkey Trot. That will be because I’ve not been running due to the ankle. It is healing well but I didn’t want to risk it on Thursday. I TRIED to go for a short run on Saturday morning but woke up to a deep, deep frost and decided it wasn’t worth the risk of slipping.
We did however pack in some lovely, short hikes whilst we were up in the mountains. There’s no pain when I walk and I tried VERY carefully jogging some of the downhills, and yay…no pain.
Tahoe is at 6,000 ft…about a mile from sea-level and the elevation effects are noticeable! Everything was much harder work, although the Dude didn’t notice anything. I wonder if elevation effects only kick in at a certain age? Anyway, the Husband has discounted Tahoe from his dreams of an Ironman in 2014.
And when we weren’t hiking…
Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving and crushed your Turkey Trots!
