Running Update

Really no longer remember wha caught my eye for this picture

Monday Intention: easy
With Henri all set to drop on us, I had no plans to run; in fact, I was considering taking a week off of running altogether. Until I woke up and we had a break in the rain (which came back later in the day). No clothes laid out, no half frozen water bottle — and it was super humid, as you might imagine — but I got out there as soon as I could to cover 3 slow miles.

I did think the reflection of the flag in this puddle was cool

Tuesday Intention: recover
Shouldn’t a tropical storm blow out the humidity? No such luck. I prepped last night, though, and got out there for 2 slow and sweaty recovery miles.

Just a small “taste” of ME & VT (almost all ME)

Favorites of the week
Running was on the light side this week, but walking & some hiking while visiting friends in ME was front & center. I wouldn’t say it was a restful vacation, but it was fun!

We are most likely on the road back home as you read this, so I will probably be late to comments again. I should have a little time this morning before we head home.

GWY Tune in for Calm Meditation

ICYMI: It’s a super quick, super destressing guided meditation here. I also have a two short vlogs where I try to explain 2 of the 8 limbs of Yoga here and here. Not quite sure how successful I was!

Coming up on Tuesday: I’m wrapping up August. On Friday it’s time to grab your favorite hot or cold beverage and exchange what’s been going on in our lives.

  1. Same here with Henri – it made it even more humid here which was just super yucky! Luckily we were blessed with great weather this weekend so I’ll take it!

    I’m so glad that you were able to get away for some much needed R&R this week! Love the photos you shared.
