Turkey Trot Running Challenge – Day 19
November 26, 2020.
Happy Thanksgiving for those that celebrate!
My pre-run meal – Empty stomach run, but I do have plans to over indulge later in the day!
Running Gear Checklist
It is rainy and windy (12 mph) with a temperature of 63 F at run time.
My pre-run checklist:
- Again, empty stomach run. Seem to run better on an empty stomach if I can do it before I get too hungry
- Warm-up stretches before running – My pre-run stretches include some air squats, high kicks (front and back), lunges, and pulling knees to chest (while standing)
- Power check for my phone and AirPods
- What to wear running always includes new compression shirts
- Put on my reflective vest
- Grabbed my handheld phone carrier.

On the Run – Before and After
Running in the rain. Steady rain and breezy. I hit the road early this morning since it was Thanksgiving and didn’t want to worry about getting a run in .
Even though running in the rain is not at the top of my list of fitness workouts, the temperature was warm enough to be tolerable.
As fate would have it, if I had waited to run later in the afternoon, the weather cleared and it turned into a beautiful day! 73F, low winds, and clear skies.
If you exercise frequently, take care of your shoes with the PEET, The Original 2-Shoe Electric Shoe and Boot Dryer and Warmer. See the one I use below. I absolutely LOVE this shoe dryer and use it daily!
Running faster tips
Continue to do more warm-ups with lunges, squats, and light stretching. I did a bit more stretching today since it was wet.
Thoughts while running
Enough though I was soaked, the workout was enjoyable. I was proud I got a fitness run in before 930am.
November Running Challenge Streak – Alive and Kicking
My running plan is winding down to the homestretch. I am starting to think about the next running challenge, but not sure about the length of runs or how many days the challenge will be.
Post-run snack – (4) egg whites and (2) slices of bacon, cooked together. A cup of coffee. (1) cup of plain yogurt, a slash of sugar-free vanilla syrup and a sprinkling of chopped walnuts.
