I was home all week, which helped, but I’ve also been quite busy between appointments and prepping to teach and teaching yoga. I felt pretty run down by the end of the week — mostly due to a week or so of poor sleep — so I took a lot more rest than usual.

I’ve been spending too much time with my treadmill. I thought I’d be running outside today, but then it snowed on and off today — lightly — but we’d had rain all day Saturday, with a drop in temps on Sunday, which means black ice is hiding under that snow. No thanks.
Ran errands, then ran at home later. Good news: it had warmed up so any ice left from yesterday had melted. Bad news: I lost the sunshine we had earlier in the day. I was hustling to get it done before my haircut, so a nice pace (at the right heart rate).
Definitely felt run down this week, so you’ll notice there wasn’t a lot of activity. I kept putting off a long run, toyed with the idea of skipping it altogether, but by Sunday I wasn’t feeling too bad and it was low 60s (with wind — notice my neck gaiter on the hat).
I struggled a bit with what to wear, as I knew the wind would make it feel cooler and the temps would be dropping. I hauled out my long haul skirt, work a wool top, and it was mostly good. I deliberately kept the pace mostly easy, and I got 7 miles done. Glad I had the opportunity to run in a skirt in January (it’s already dropped into the 50s, and will only go down from there).
Favorites of the week
Happy to be back representing #teamnuun for a second year! Which reminds me, I really need to go drink some Nuun Rest . . .
We plugged in the heated bed that used to be Gizmo’s and the dogs seem to be enjoying it.
I taught my second Cat Yoga class at the Humane Society. There were some people who had come to the first class. Even more rewarding was one of the women telling me afterward that one of the moves I did really helped her back, and another sharing her word for 2020 with me.
There are some exciting things brewing with my Yoga, but I’m not quite ready to share yet! What I am ready to share is my newest video: it’s basically the Yin half of the class I taught. I plan to video the first half of the class, which is more Vinyasa style, soon. Check out the video above here.
Sign up for my newsletter here to find out when I add new videos, and you’ll receive a free companion PDF to the video above and a bonus Abundance meditation.
I also have a short video I filmed in the car post run today, and I need your feedback on that one! Please watch it here (it’s only 2 minutes) and leave me a comment.
What good news did you get this week?
What’s your go-to when you’re feeling like your coming down with something? A while ago I listened to an audiobook that recommended putting black pepper in your tea. I swear it helps (I imagine it would work just fine with coffee, too).
How has 2020 started for you?
