Kind of a raw, chilly day. At least I didn’t get rained on. Of course Wednesday was beautiful, but I got other stuff done then. Started working on nasal breathing while running. I’ll write about that — eventually. Basically it made my run much slower, and felt really hard — even though slower.
I’ve also never struggled with my nose running while running until today. Who knew mouth breathing was the answer?
Still breathing in & out through my nose. Felt a bit easier today. Still very slow but it’s supposed to be in the beginning. It’s kind of like beginning HR training. I tried a few things and nose wasn’t running as much.
Back to nose running (literally & figuratively). Have to admit I couldn’t imagine nasal breathing for 8 miles, and it was tough, but I mostly did it. This run was 12 minutes slower than my very hilly run last week. Same distance. That wasn’t completely due to nasal breathing, though, I just wasn’t feeling the hills on the way back so I did a lot of walking.
Mr. Judy & I debated me calling him to come pick me up so I didn’t have to come back up the hills, but in the end, I nixed that idea. Kinda sorry about that.
Favorites of the week
Lola is definitely showing her age, sleeping a great deal, and sleeping later in the mornings. I told Mr. Judy to just put the bolster on top of her when he got up, so he did.
Not liking? Got an email update from my mom’s senior living community. They have their first case. In assisted living, and my mom does not live in assisted living, but it’s still part of the building. Thinking good thoughts. She’s tough.
No doubt you’ve probably heard about the Blogger Zoom call yesterday by now. I’m sure it will have even more people next week. And hilarity will ensue.
Are you doing all the cooking?
Are you afraid of going live on Facebook? I know I’ve been resisting it!
#teamtraining or #teammaintenance? For now I am still training, at least until I find out if the half end of June is a go or not. If it’s cancelled, I’ll be back to maintenance.
Coming up on Tuesday: There are three things you need for a bad weather run. Then on Friday I’ll go more into Karma vs Dharma which I talked a little bit about in my vlog here.
