the internet is great, social media is wonderful. Both kept us connected through this crazy year. Yet sometimes you need to disconnect.
and so I did.
At the time of sitting down to write this “run down” on Saturday night, I hadn’t touched my computer in a week and didn’t really want to. I’m still “fine” in that I’m healthy and working, but the non stop snow on the eve of the one year anniversary? Time for a mental and physical break. I read a lot this week so didn’t fully break up with electronics. I think I’ve found I’m just a Kindle reader these days.
Didn’t mean to worry anyone by going slightly AWOL. Oops. xx
- I do love winter and winter running, but even I had enough of the grey skies and penguining that was necessary to get outdoors after more non-stop snow. I did get back on the Never Miss a Monday train, which helped a lot with routine even just to get outside around the snow and ice.
- Lucky enough to run into friends in the Park, including the photo above before I saw Elizabeth. Human contact is essential and I truly believe we’re not meant to be indoors.
- cannot believe I stuck with the enCore28 challenge. I had to modify the last week due to a lack of weights access (and a few other random days for skill level), but I’d call it done. It was fun, but glad to move on to other body parts. I will definitely re-visit some of Matty’s classes later to see if I find the moves easier. I’m pretty sure I’ll never be able to do plank reaches though
- the geese were fun to watch in Central Park, but they don’t quite compare to the wading birds of the Everglades or the random ones you find crossing the streets in south Florida. On rest days, or afternoons where it was too hot to be active, it was so good to be able to be outside. Vitamin F as in Fresh Air is even more key than Vitamin Sea. Beachfession: while I run to the beach on most of my run days, I’m not a beach person. Too hot/sandy.
- I thought I’d come in just under my 75 mile goal due to the weather this month, but I eked it out with some back to back runs. It all adds up. Baby steps toward the yearly goal.
and baby steps back to normal.
Hugs to all that need them.
