This week was all over the place.
I’m healthy and safe, as are my family and friends, so that’s where I’m going to leave the CV19 talk. I hope the same is true for you and your loved ones. I think many of us learned in the last few weeks that connections are even more important – if anyone needs an ear, I’m always available to talk/text/whatever.
If you celebrate, I hope your Easter and/or Passover went as best as possible given current conditions.
I love Hope for the Warriors and miss their NYC 5K, so I was happy to see they’re doing a virtual fitness challenge. It’s free, but there’s a donation requested. It will integrate well with the Zooma challenge and is a little less intense than the 21 Day Fix, which my IT Band did not like.
- There was a beautiful Uncanceled Project slog of a 5K.
- There was a run turned walk on Saturday when I realized it was stupid to push to run when it hurt when a walk didn’t. The park was gorgeous and empty enough to social distance easily.
- There were tears over Slow Dance More. I’m fine, but this situation is just so uncertain.
- There was a Zoom baby shower, fun virtual runs “together” with friends, matching, sharing local sights and finding our inner creativity. I am so grateful for technology allowing me to see family, friends and colleagues.
- I rediscovered enjoyment of writing letters and cards. My handwriting is atrocious, but sometimes email doesn’t cut it.
- There was a delicious lunch, courtesy of a friend’s recipe, for four days that I will be making again
- There were multiple walks timed to participate and take in #ClapBecauseWeCare from a different vantage point than my window
- There was a purchase of a balance pad to improve my in-home PT efforts. The IT Band isn’t anywhere near as bad as it was in December, but neither is it as good as it was when I graduated PT.
- There was coffee the size of my head, because coffee makes so many things better
- There were some pretty sights and a podcast with one of my Rogue coaches as I ran/walked errands to find the post office. I’ve lived in this apartment for 7.5 years and the general neighborhood for more than 10, but so much I don’t know because I rarely explore the avenues.
- There was couch time with a wonderful book about the National Parks. My trip to Mesa Verde scratched that itch, and this book continues that. I can’t wait to visit one hopefully later this year. No Jan 1 sunrise hikes in the snow for me though.
- There were many silly memes and a great thread about school memories.
Hang in there everyone.
