With Mr. Judy gone, it was a quiet week. Except for Lola’s stomach issues. There wasn’t a lot of sleep much of the time he was gone.

So much for Spring. It wasn’t really a bad day weather day, just gloomy. I’m so over gloomy. After procrastinating (on other stuff that needed to get done) I finally got myself out the door during lunch, which made for a weird lunch very late. Pretty consistent 4 miles even with 1 mile of running up and down a short, but steep hill.
Searched for signs of Spring, looks like some of our neighbor’s Forsythias are beginning to bloom. Not ours, we don’t get as much sun on my side of the street. Definitely way too early!
I woke up trying to convince myself I could handle the cold and wind later in the day, that it would make me stronger. Then it started to snow . . . not the fluffy, pretty kind, but the little sleety balls kind. I had new shoes to try out though . . . and somehow I managed to run outside.
It wasn’t too bad. Except my attempt to create a custom workout on my Garmin Vivoactive 3 was an epic fail — it was supposed to be 400s, and but apparently I put in .05 miles for the warmup & cooldown — not the half mile I’d intended. Basically I ran hard for a while and walked a bit then ran hard, and it was what it was (because my watch said I was done with the workout after one mile!).
This was a nice run when the wind was calm. Cold, but not bad. When the wind blew, though, which it did fairly regularly, it was pretty brutal. I did not run on the path above, but it was nice to see it was pretty clear. I thought about calling it quits early, but the truth was I knew I could do 9 miles, so I did. I definitely found my strong on this run!
Favorites of the week
I did get together with a friend for lunch this week. We see each other at our WW meeting once a week — well, except during all the months my Dad was failing, I missed many meetings — but we like to get together for lunch once in a while.
I introduced her to the Japanese crepe place, which I really do enjoy — and she did too.
