The last few days I have had some small victories I’m excited about:
- On Saturday I ran 5 miles! This is the farthest I have run since taking a break from running to let a strain in my hamstring heal last fall. It felt awesome! I did the run on the treadmill since the weather was iffy and I think we still need a little more melting action on the sidewalks/trails.
- On Sunday in yoga I finally jumped from crow to plank! I got the hang of crow about a month ago ( it’s still really the only arm balance I have mastered), but I just couldn’t seem to get my legs off my arms and into plank. I was at a class with a teacher I have never had before and some of her cues helped me out. The key for me is taking my gaze forward, which shifts the weight forward a bit and then it’s all core to get the legs back. I felt so STRONG.
- I did ALMOST all the items on the to-do list in my planner last week. The only one left is “find a new job” which is really more than just a one-week task 😉
Other activities last weekend included seeing the Oscar-nominated animated short films at Filmstreams, dinner at a new pizzeria with Zach, and having my sister and her family over for dinner – what a great weekend!
