At my mom’s much of this week again. Dad is home. Big, big adjustment. Third time refers to the fact that his release kept getting pushed to a different date, due to medical issues, but in the end I brought him home on Thursday. Although there was time to get a third run in this week, I knew my body was better served with extra rest.
It was a week short on activity, although I did the best I could, and also way short on sleep. And photos, apparently — I took almost no photos this week.

I considered pushing this run to Wednesday, but Wednesday ended up being very unsettled so probably just as well I did it. Kept it nice & easy. Overdressed but survived.
It was 15k weekend, and I woke up feeling run down this morning. Still the race would have gone really well — if my foot hadn’t started to really hurt by mile 6. It’s mostly ok now. Best I can figure is my shoe was laced too tight. Very odd, never had pain there at all before today. I’ll recap the race on Tuesday.
Favorites of the week
I taught my first big yoga class. I’d posted it to my FB page, so the cat was out of the bag, so to speak: yes, it was cat yoga at the Humane Society.
Let’s just say there’s a lot I need to learn (which I knew) and going from teaching one on one to teaching 18 people of all sizes, ages, and abilities was a big leap. They’ve asked if I’ll do a class in December — it’s a win-win on both sides!
The bar was low, though, because the real star of the class were the cats.
A definite favorite was getting together with a running buddy (who is currently sidelined from running) whom I haven’t seen in a while. We went out to lunch, then ran into each other the next day when I went to pick up my bib (she was there for someone else, not herself). Also our post race brunch, also seeing runner friends I hadn’t seen in a while.
Unfortunately there was some more family drama (not involving my parents this time), but it seems resolved. Plus bad news from another friend. I’m really ready for some good news!
Ever tried a yoga class (not at home!) with animals?
Are you good at listening to your body?
