Readers workouts
Last week was Thanksgiving – lots of food, family, friends and little exercise. Actually, that’s not entirely true. My brother was in town and he’s good at getting me motivated. Saturday we went for a run together – he had to run way slower than he usually does, but he didn’t complain. We ended up going 7.44 miles at just under 12 mins/mile, according to his gizmo, which is the farthest I’ve run. It goes a little quicker when you have company, I think, but that’s not usually an option for me. My friends don’t run and I’m not good at making new friends.

Sunday I worked out with dumbbells at home and did some jumping jacks.

Monday I did nothing  – because I picked up my new car!! I know it’s not workout related, but I wanted to share anyway. I am so happy. This one’s windows will actually go up and down, the exhaust system doesn’t sound like a truck and it will start on cold mornings. This was it in the showroom. It’s a Honda Fit. So, if you have one and love it, tell me. If you have one and hate it, don’t mention it.

    Nice-looking car! Car-shopping makes for an unexpectedly long day. I don’t think I’ve managed exercise and buying a car on the same day, either. Fortunately, it doesn’t happen very often!

    • We actually did most of the test-driving on Black Friday. While everyone else was at the malls, we were going to dealerships. On Monday, I worked ’til 5 and then we picked up the car at 7, but between there we had to eat and pick up amber from a band thing.

  • That is a good looking car! Congratulations!!
    “So, if you have one and love it, tell me. If you have one and hate it, don’t mention it.” LOL!

    Wow! 7.44 miles is a great run!
