You may notice there was a lot of Yoga video filming going on this week. Even very early in the morning. That’s because for the first time in almost 2 years, Mr. Judy went to see his mom and sister (who live outside of Seattle). We’ll get to the stuff that made me happy this week in the Favorites section!

Tuesday Intention: easy
Gotta say I wasn’t feeling that great this morning, but even before I started to run things felt easy and this run just flowed. Not fast, but faster than I’d been dragging myself around lately. Go figure. Another bell curve run with the last mile the fastest.
Wednesday Intention: recover
This run was absolutely a surprise — again! Was it the almost 2 mile walk with a friend beforehand? Was it the Yin Yoga video I’d filmed early in the morning? Of course I’m not trying to run fast — and this didn’t feel easy like the day before, although not truly hard — but this was the fastest 1 mile I’ve run in a month. Now I’ll take a feels-easy-faster long-er run this weekend, thank you very much. Of course I’m gonna take whatever actually happens!
Sunday Intention: go long-er for 80 minutes
This run did not have that flow state, sadly, but it wasn’t bad either. There was weird stuff up in those trees at the end of the run. Things that make you go hmmm.
Favorites of the week
A happy occasion to visit mom: my SIL, nephew and his new bride (whom we hadn’t yet met) were visiting so we went down to meet & greet. Hadn’t seen any of them IRL in a long time.
Got together with a friend for a very chilly walk — it almost didn’t happen. I had contacted two different friends on getting together for a walk this week, but it seemed like nobody’s schedule was meshing with mine. Finally made it happen; luckily this friend doesn’t mind walking with Bandit.
Finally I am three for three on jury duty — that is not being selected. I actually did request to be excused while Mr. Judy was away. I’ve put in another request for the next doctor appointment I need to take my mom to. Maybe I’ve aged out, which would be a-ok by me!
I have a bonus inspirational saying from my tea this morning (see the others in this post here): Celebrate your successes and failures; both required great courage. Perfect for runners!
ICYMI: I am sharing exactly how I stretch in bed & get energized in the morning this week. It’s a really short practice. Bandit totally got into the act, which he actually doesn’t do in the morning! I have a couple of videos dropping on Thanksgiving Day, too.

Coming up on Tuesday & Friday: Tuesday should you dress differently for short runs — like recovery run short? Friday it’s already time to runfess and come clean for November!
