Not a whole lot to report this week. Feeling better, but almost no running. No need to push myself. Since I’m mentoring for the Freihofers Training Challenge, it’s a pretty perfect opportunity to ease back into running, as the challenge follows the C25K app.
And linking up with Jenn @ Runswithpugs, Brandi @ Funnerrunner, Anna Louise @ Graciouswarriorprincess, Briana @ Matsmilesmedals, Meghan @ Meghanonthemove, and Elizabeth @ Trainwithbainfor RIOTS(running is our therapy)
- Monday: Dogwalk, Tai Chi (exploring new options, this was very brief)
- Tuesday: Dogwalk, Yoga (20 minutes)
- Wednesday: Yoga for Abs & Posture (45 minutes), Dogwalk
- Thursday: Dogwalk, Yoga (20 Minutes)
- Friday: Yoga for IT & Hamstrings (30 minutes), Dogwalk
- Saturday: Run/walk, mostly walking & mentoring (20 minutes)
- Sunday: Yoga for Neck & Shoulders (20 minutes), Dogwalk
Mileage: 1, maybe? LOL — nowhere to go but up! (-5)

My return to “running” coincided with mentoring for Freihofers Womens Run again — I’d already missed the kickoff on Monday. It also coincided with a thin covering of snow and ice. Insane winds giving the real temperature of 30 a feels like 15. I won’t lie: I really didn’t want to go.
I didn’t do a whole lot of running. I walked quite a bit with one lovely woman towards the end who is battling PF (and I know a lot of you can relate to that!).
Despite the conditions I’m really glad I got out there. Left to my own devices I wouldn’t have, but I had a blast and I think all the women that showed up did, too.
Favorites of the week
I did find a new Netflix show to watch (new to us, anyway, apparently the first season came out in 2016): The OA. Also very odd, but odd in a good way to me. I love Jason Isaacs — such a talented actor. I do hate that his character is rather evil.
The Widow, btw, was on Amazon Prime. Really enjoyed that.
So my one very short run/walk yesterday still netted me lots more steps than I’ve been getting lately. It’s been a while since I’ve seen 10k steps — still slowly easing back into activity, trying hard to stay healthy this time.
Talk to me:
When looking for a show to watch, what type catches your interest?
Do the little teases of Spring have you thinking about what you’re going to do when the weather gets nice?
What’s blooming where you live (snow here, apparently, although it should melt by tomorrow, it wasn’t very much)?
