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.
