Three Things Thursday

1. Running streak - In all the choas of the past two weeks, I didn't take a rest day from running.  Today will be Day 15 of my running streak and Day 25 of my exercise streak.  So....should I take today off from running? It is supposed to be unseasonably warm today with a high of 78F this afternoon.  It's going to be hard resisting heading out for a run after work.  Either way the running streak will end tomorrow but the exercise streak/not taking a complete rest day will continue!

My Brooks Ghost 5s have 515 miles on them!
2. Compression socks - During the summer I always kind of forget to wear my compression socks because it is so warm out.  This week has been the return of the socks under the work attire.  Love being able to hide my pink socks!

3. The garden - We have had a few cold nights so I went out and picked the last of the vegetables from the garden.  I actually got a lot of green tomoatoes that are now slowly ripening on my kitchen window sill.  We still have a lot of carrots in the ground and it is really awesome to be able to run outside and grab a few carrots when I am making stew or soup!

Happy Thursday!!



Great blog post! Erica

It's SO cold here today. We actually got snow this afternoon, but it was too warm for it to accumulate. It was pretty watching it fall from the sky but it's TOO EARLY FOR THAT KIND OF WEATHER. Yes, ALL CAPS is needed for that statement! I wish it was warmer here!!

I have never tried compression socks! I should give them a shot next training season!

Yes, I've been wearing my compression socks and sleeves a lot more lately now that it's colder out. Just feels good whether or not they "work."
