Another super challenging week. I actually have hopes that life will get just a little bit better, the reason may seem odd: my Dad is now on Hospice. No, nothing changed, although everything changed. I plan to write more about that next Friday.

A cold rainy washout of a day. Did a steady state run on the mill. I prefer speedwork on it, but I knew I would most likely be back on it the next day. I actually hopped on the stationary bike and did a short dynamic warm up before running!
Snow & sleet overnight & a potential trip to my moms had me back on the mill. Weather while I’m home this week mostly sucks, but I’m glad I can still safely run on the mill.
I didn’t have as much frustration to run off today, but the weather on the weekend wasn’t looking great. I was really tired, it’s been a long couple of weeks, but had a good run and glad I got that out of the way. The bike path is clear again — but not for long, probably — so finally running in a different place felt good.
Favorites of the week
Mr. Judy nailed my Hannukah gift. Normally we don’t even exchange anything anymore, although it’s tradition for me to give him an Ansel Adams calendar. I almost forgot about it in the midst of family drama — Amazon to the rescue!
In the beginning of my YTT the Yoga Teacher Toolbox was mentioned. It’s a binder with laminated cards of many poses with all sorts of information. It’s very comprehensive, and not surprisingly, not cheap. I mentioned it to Mr. Judy, and he kept looking for a deal on Ebay. Eventually I decided I didn’t need it. Guess what I got on the last night of Hannukah?
I did sign up for a half marathon this summer (hoping I get to run it, but one reason I chose it was its generous deferral policy): Revel Mt. Hood (see more info here). I’ve been wanting to try a Revel race a long time, wanting to go to Portland, and you now I love a downhill race. I also look forward to meeting Laurie @ Meditationsinmotion who is also signed up.
