November Favorites

Posted Dec 02 2010 4:41pm

Can you believe it is December already?

It really snuck up on me! Actually, this whole YEAR snuck up on me. Time really does fly when you are having fun ;)

I only ran 140 miles in November, but that does not mean it was not a great month. Actually, it was one of the bests months I have had this year!

1. Thanksgiving


Hands down, this was my favorite part of the month. Good food, good family, and good times. My family truly made me feel special when I came home. I don’t get that very often at school, so it was nice to feel appreciated for once. The most attention I get out here is being honked, yelled, and cursed at while I am riding to class.

2. My Vibram FiveFingers


I LOVE these shoes. I walk in them, I run in them, hell I even bike in them (on short rides when I am not clipping in/out).

When I am not cross training or running, they are the only shoes that I wear. I get plenty of weird looks and comments, but I am totally OK with that. If you want to look at my feet, go right ahead ;)

My favorite comment: “Hey man look at those shoes! They have toes!”

3. My Heart Rate Monitor

Heart Rate Monitor

I rarely run with a heart rate monitor, but when I am cross training, I feel like it is essential. It is easy to gauge my effort when I am running, but it is a lot harder for me to gauge my effort when I am doing something that is new to me. Of course it is going to feel hard because I am working different muscles, but I want to make sure I am getting the maximum benefit out of it.

Do you run with a heart rate monitor?

4. Cheese


This was BY FAR my favorite food last month! Cheese has always been one of my favorites, but I was totally addicted to it last month. For the past few months, my goal was to try a new cheese from Whole Foods every week when I did my weekly grocery shop. Gouda, cheddar, goat cheese, feta…

They are all amazing :)

If I had to pick one that was my favorite, I’m going to have to go with Le Gruyere or Drunken Goat Cheese . Both our now staples in my house apartment :)

What is your favorite kind of cheese? Any suggestions I need to try?

What were some of your November favorites?

Whew, this post is starting to get a bit long, so I will quickly recap today’s training.

Running: 8.9 miles (4 barefoot)

Cycling: 10 miles in 40 minutes to cool down

I had planned on going to the 6 AM spin class because the “endurance” spin class on Thursday mornings is 75 minutes, but I forgot to set my alarm for 5:00 and I missed it. I don’t have class until later on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, so it was set for a later time :(

Hey, I still got in a great workout on my own right?

Tomorrow, I WILL make it to spin!
