Black Friday is usually a time for shopping and relaxing, but some folks wanted to work off the extra pounds they may have put on because of Turkey Day.

"Oh I had turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans, and home-made rolls that my mother made," said Analene Jenkins, Taylor County Resident.

With all the yummy holiday foods consumed Thursday night, many folks felt they needed to head straight to the gym.

"Burning off the apple pies, pumpkin pies, turkey and stuffing," said Bryan Morlock, Harrison County Resident.

While others went to the gym as part of their daily routine.

"I'm working out. I'm not a big fan of going out on Black Friday. I have family members that do it, but it's not really my thing," said Clay Conrad, Upshur County Resident.

After a big Thanksgiving day feast many people are hitting the gym while others are hitting the stores. But could shopping help burn those calories?

"You do a lot of walking and fighting for the stuff you want," said Caitlin Brown, Doddridge County Resident.

Many folks feel that with all the hustling you do you could burn a lot of calories and carrying those heavy bags probably helps out too.

"It was good I went to Walmart at 8 o'clock last night, Target at 9 o'clock last night, Kohl's at midnight, and then we went to the mall and that was crazy. Then I went home, I was too tired," said Yvonne Chelberg, Harrison County Resident.

Whether you hit the gym or hit the stores, this Black Friday was a tiring one and probably wore you out.
