Hot to trot... straight toward dessert?

Exercise du jour:
Four mile jog/walk, the Turkey Trot benefit for the Portland Zoo.

Week 1 Day 2 C25K ... around the neighborhood. My shins are still hurting, but I'm going to try the ice-and-ibuprofen routine and see if they'll let me mosey at a gentle pace. (Brisk five-minute warm up walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes.)

Today, I will be thankful for my body, which is for the most part pretty healthy, and for my good friends.

What are you thankful for?

Done! It helped to schedule this post ahead of time. Then, as the time got closer for it to be published, I felt obliged to haul myself up and get on the treadmill. (I was going to run outside, even though it is raining, but the dog gave me this stricken, bereft look "You're LEAVING ME? For HALF an HOUR?????" and I caved in. She has me well trained.)

As I read this my own dog is whining to be taken for a walk down to the creek, which tends to happen on days when I'm home all day, and he knows that. But the fire is so warm.
