There’s your Dolly Parton earworm for the day! You’re welcome! That’s how I feel though — or maybe it’s just Groundhog Day the movie. I feel like I’ve had to start over, over and over this year.
Hopefully now I can rebuild and stay strong!
I’m joining Kim @ Kimrunsonthefly and Deborah @ Confessionsofamotherrunner, and returning to running post vaccine. Oddly I think it was easier with the second vaccine. Probably because I was more prepared. Maybe because of all the Nuun Immunity? Who knows!

Tuesday Intention: easy — how does it feel?
I wouldn’t say this run felt great, especially since I got out late (met a friend for a walk before the run). Overall not bad. I credit taking a week off running after my second vaccine. It wasn’t planned, but I think my body appreciated it.
Friday Intention: avoid the wind
It was very windy and a little on the chilly side. I know I could’ve run outside, but somehow it wasn’t terribly inviting. I did a 45 minute Peloton Pop run and just kinda did my own thing. Even at an easy pace I could see the droplets of sweat on the tread!
Sunday Intention: a few more easy miles
I don’t feel the need to push with no training, and I think maybe easing back into running has been easier because, well, I took it easier. It was actually a tad warm — the front came through and it got chilly and rainy later, but I was happy to run in a skirt.
Favorites of the week
It’s been a while since we did a little road trip, and even though we weren’t blessed with great weather, we made the most of it. Waterfalls, tulips, pizza & ice cream oh my! No real hiking, those falls are just off of a parking lot basically, but there was some walking around.
I could have sat by those falls meditating forever!
I also got together with a friend to walk for the first time since last year, because, Winter.
Are you training for something?
Have you raced recently?

Coming up on Tuesday: I’m wrapping up April. Friday apparently it’s time for a coffee/tea date — at least I wasn’t the only one confused about which weekend that should be.
