Turkey Trot Running Workout Round Up

 

Since we normally we spend Thanksgiving in the city, we had considered going to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade this year but then our plans changed completely and will be spending the holiday out here on Long Island instead.

I now get to make a bunch of side dishes plus dessert which I have yet to totally finalize recipe-wise which is okay because that’s not the point of this post.

I really could have run a Turkey Trot race now that we will be home Thanksgiving morning but I hate driving to run a 5k and there really isn’t another race distance available near me.

No big deal though because I can run my own little Turkey Trot at home by creating my own race distance and workout plan.

Turkey Trot Running Round Up - Collection of running workouts to do on Thanksgiving Day

I put together a running roundup of my of top 5 running workouts, any of these would be perfect for Thanksgiving morning depending upon how many miles you want to get in before celebrating the holiday with your family and friends.

    I usually do my own turkey trot (inside). This will be maybe the first or second time in 10 years that I’ve not run on Thanksgiving!

    I haven’t tired to type up a post since Saturday, but that sounds annoying! The problem with running a marathon the weekend before Thanksgiving is that it’s too soon to race (or even run at all, really) on Thanksgiving. While it’s definitely been nice to take some time off this week, I know I will be itching to run on Thursday!

    I’m doing a turkey trot! Pittsburgh has a 5k and 5 miler, or you can sign up for both. I do it pretty much every year! I went to the Macy’s parade one year and it was cool, but I probably won’t do it again. SO crowded and it was freezing! I’m glad I got to see it though 🙂

      Yeah, the parade gets crazy crowded but tomorrow should be warm at least for the people standing there all morning! Good luck in the race.

  • Michele @ paleorunningmomma November 24, 2015, 8:41 am

    Love this! I’ve never done an official Thanksgiving turkey trot but I do like running that morning as long as the cooking is under control! Nothing long but 5-6 miles feels right before all the festivities.

    I’m doing a turkey trot in my CT hometown! I don’t like driving to 5ks either, but I plan to run there and back (2 miles each way) and make it a really nice morning workout since we then have to get in the car for 2 hours afterwards to drive to Thanksgiving and will have a repeat in the evening. So it works out 🙂

    I won’t go out of my way for a Thanksgiving 5K but luckily there is usually a 5 miler. This year I am heading up to Port Washington which is pretty close to me for their 5 miler before hightailing it to my fam in NJ. Just couldn’t resist the race and we are doing a low key thing so it luckily (and selfishly) worked out.

    I do the same thing early on Christmas morning before anyone else is up. There are no official runs on Christmas morning so I have my own “event”- usually a half-marathon or something like that and there is usually not a soul on the roads. I love it!

    It could help them pay for your final expenses, like debts, medical expenses and funeral

    Keep in mind that investing should not be treated lightly.
    Banks treat stock market investing seriously and so should you.

    Even though one may first think of the stock market as gambling,
    it is more serious than that. Take the time to understand thoroughly everything about the companies that you
    are investing.

    It is important that you never think of investing as a hobby.

    Make certain that your website displays well at all screen resolutions.

    You can do this by utilizing percentages for the width and height of the elements on your
    webpage, as opposed to fixed pixel dimensions. In addition, a page that displays properly at a lower resolution, will
    generally work well at higher resolutions.
    Prior to making your website public, you should test it at various resolutions to ensure that all

    Avoid frames at all costs. Just don’t use them. While they can make it simple for your menu or header to appear all throughout your

    Use a descriptive title. Many site owners forget

    in their rankings, so make sure you are as descriptive as
