That has been the story of my life. At first, just on my laptop in Firefox. Then at work too in Chrome. Bizarrely I have no idea what broke as I removed the only new plugin I’d tried recently. So I’m either logged out and commenting with name / email, or logged in and writing.
I think it’s fixed now, alas I lost my sidebars and don’t love the theme, but I’ll settle for functionality until I have time to fix it Nope, still can’t reply outside of troubleshooting mode. Grumble.
This week was another one with lots of art: Gerhard Richter at Met Breuer, EFA VIP Reception, Fotografiska and the Armory Show. I love Armory Week.
- never miss a Monday: was back again with five pre-work miles with Elizabeth. It was a gorgeous morning after the weekend’s cold spell and the knee behaved to facilitate two reservoir laps before I headed home to change for work. Luckily I was only mid-PT and pre dressing when I spilled my coffee all over the floor. Note to self: foam roller’s end isn’t steady. Luckily, Breuer is close to my apartment and I was one of the first into the Gerhard Richter show. I wasn’t super familiar with the breadth of his work, but really walked away impressed. I brought my gym bag to work expecting to only “stop by” the EFA Studios event, but you know how that is when you get to chatting. This was one of those weeks where I was grateful for the morning runs.
- Tuesday: off, dinner with friends.
- Wednesday: quick run along the East River before work. I only realized when I finished that it was the same route I took when my knee went berserk. It was chirping on this run, but not worse and I made sure to get to the gym after work for a full set of PT.
- Thursday: Fotografiska with someone new to NYC who I met through my grad school professor. Still so weird to me to be in that “mentor/advisor” role. Thrilled to do so, but don’t necessarily feel like an adult at times, if that makes sense. Fotografiska is in an amazing landmarked building, and I’m glad I got there as I was away when it opened. In funny timing, it’s almost a year since I realized where it was going to be. Darlene and I passed it on our post-NYC Half Expo wanderings. My personal favorites were Anastasia Taylor Lind’s project about the interconnections between the women of NYC-especially who cares for the children of nannies and other caregivers while they’re working with other families and Ellen von Unwerth’s Devotion! (some slightly NSFW)
- Friday: tried to run on the treadmill but knee was NOT HAVING IT so I settled for a load of PT.
- Saturday: The Armory Show has been at the Piers for a number of years. Earlier this week it announced it would move from March to September and from the Piers to Javits Center, so it was time to make one last trip. No formal exercise, but lots of steps between a morning coffee date, the piers, and a return to midtown. With all the concerns about Coronavirus, the fresh air felt good. I’m not a huge modern & contemporary art person, but liked the vibrant colors.
- Sunday: NYRR 5M shakeout run.
Plan is to run to and from to make nine-ish. We’ll see with the lost hour.Nope. Knew they’d start late and didn’t want to get warm & cold after last week so I took the train to and met a friend for brunch after. Life is more than the mileage plan.
Plan for the Week:
- Monday: off, after work event and not running two days in a row. May walk to work or from event because it will be in the 60s.
- Tuesday: run
- Wednesday: run?
- Thursday: volunteer NYC Half Expo
- Friday: off
- Saturday: long run
- Sunday: cheer at the NYC Half
