Last week's workouts? None; zero; nada. First time in years. Just got busy and am trying to catch up at work and at home. A couple of years ago I made November my "if I feel like it" month--it works for me.
Did get in core/conditioning/stretching in most days. I don't count that as a workout because it's pretty clear that with my back issues, I'm going to have to make it a routine part of my life, irrespective of my sports.
Decades ago we gave up traveling for holidays, so it will be a low key at home week for us. Safe travels for everyone on the road this week.
Run if it works out. Don't if it hurts.: WIN - ran 3x, and it felt ok.
Swim x 3 - WIN
Bike x 3 - WIN
Core/strength x 4 - WIN
Foam roll x 4 - WIN
20-25min runs on Tues, Thurs & Sun worked out ok, despite it starting to snow and getting locked in the deep freeze. Would have run Saturday but we had errands to take care of then went and checked out Ripley's Aquarium with a bunch of friends, and by the time we got home it was almost 10pm and -13c/9f with a ridiculous windchill.
This week's goals:
Run x 4
Swim x 4
Bike x 4
Core/strength x 4
Foam roll/rehab x 4
I think I ended up with a bit of SI joint dysfunction from the whole hamstring business, so I've started doing the exercises my chiro gave me the last time my SIJ went wonky. It seems to be responding, and I've been able to run the last 2 days in a row plus put in an hour on the trainer both of days while my leg/hip still continues to improve. I just need to remember to take it easy stretching it, as I can make it sore again pretty quickly by pushing it too far - no surprise, as that's how it happened to begin with, but I'm used to having pretty good flexibility so it's an adjustment in mindset for me.
ill advised racing inc.
I did my marathon end of Oct, so Nov is supposed to be an easy month, so I'm not too upset about one bad week.
This week's goals
Run 5-6 times for at least 45 miles
Bike x 5
Swim x 3, hopefully 4.
Of course this will all depend on if my family doesn't mind me getting workouts it while they're home. So I will play it by ear.
Doing Turkey Trot on Thursday for fun - my 3kids and my 84 yo father will all be running / walking too. Should be fun
Be safe and happy training.
Bad family drama is messing with my head - thank goodness for good advice from friends. Why am I not surprised it's right before Thanksgiving?
You. You make me stronger.

My goals last week were bike commute a couple times (done once), take a day off from running (fail), swim 15k (done!), do well with food (had a couple of rough days). Weight is either stable or I've lost a pound over the past few weeks. Hard to tell when it's just one.
M - 7 mi run + 1800 yd swim + 6.5 mi bike
T - 10.2 mi run + 2500 yd swim
W - 6.5 mi run + 4000 yd swim
T - 9 mi run
F - 7 mi run + 4600 yd swim
S - 8.5 mi run
S - 9.3 mi run + 4600 yd swim
Goals this week - swim 15k, day off from running, be present and enjoy Thanksgiving food and not binge on pie and homemade crescent rolls
