Workout Of The Day for Thursday, 11/26 – “Slow Roast for Thanksgiving.”

Howdy folks. Happy Turkey Day!

Oh wait… I meant, Happy Turkey Day!

I prefer ’em live and waddling around, myself…

…anyways, for those of you in the US, it’s Thanksgiving, and odds of getting much in the way of a scheduled, intense workout in are pretty slim. If you can, the workout for today is the Slow Roast –

Perfect name for a Thanksgiving day ride, eh?

This is also synchs up nicely with the idea of just getting out on the bike and sneaking a ride in; the Slow Roast is about as close to that as these workouts get!

If you live in Seattle, there is an organized benefit ride on Thanksgiving day that works well as a workout for today –

Here’s the beta –

Please join us for the 6th annual Seattle Thanksgiving Day Ride to benefit Northwest Harvest

We will meet at the Leschi Starbucks,|47.603240576716246|-122.29418277740478|14&fs=1

We’ll meet at 9am and depart at 9.15 for a socially paced ride around the south end of Lake Washington.

A suggested donation of $5 per rider what I am asking, but whatever you can give would be a great help.

The Cycling community has contributed $800-$1,000 to Northwest Harvest the past several years, to help those in need at this time of year. Let’s try to, at least, match that and help where it’s really needed.

See you there, and let’s hope for dry roads 😉

Have fun, and be careful out there; plenty of knucklehead drivers in a holiday mood on the roads the next couple of days!
