Thanksgiving: The Reckoning

I did good today. 1727 calories consumed. 590 calories burned.  I saw Thanksgiving and I kicked its ass if I do say so myself.  And I do.  I really, really do.

Five and a half hours later and I am still stuffed.

I signed up for the Virtual Turkey Trot at Daily Mile.  All you had to do was run, walk or bike a 5K today and donate to the Saint Jude's Children's hospital.  I had planned on getting on the treadmill anyway, so why not donate to a worthy cause at the same time?

Today's workout saw two of my personal bests.  I walked the longest distance in a hour (3.40 miles) and I ran my longest single run (6 minutes).  3.4 miles per hour also seems to be my baseline now.  I can do that rate of speed relatively easy so I am going to amp it up to 3.6 miles per hour tomorrow and see how that goes.

How did everyone's Thanksgiving turn out?  Did you make smart choices?
