My unstated goal has been to move 20+ miles per week -- second week in a row that I've hit it (and I'll do more because it's too damn nice out not to go out for a walk or two today). I know that I'm not doing anything epic here, but it feels good nonetheless. During the week, my mindset has shifted -- instead of going for a walk if I have time, I really try and fit something in. I have to admit, the nice weather is a big boost for me. While my allergies are not happy with Spring, it's been an absolute kaleidoscope of colors with everything blooming and it makes my heart happy to see it.

A rainy day to reset things. The kid is coming over to cook dinner to celebrate Jim's 60 birthday, which is next week. The grandkid will be here. She is cute and demanding. Raise strong women, people.??

Rallied some friends together to walk this week. It seems like we all lose or gain motivation together, so I may as well see if I can't get the motivation ball rolling. Heading out today with a friend on the bike path and invited a couple others to come over and walk trails. Today is earth day. Play to spend it working on my little portion of the earth.

Was texted by my friend at 3 AM, the little one had a fever ....texted again at 7 that the older one now also had a fever.  No kids today.  As much as I love them, I was relieved.
I spent my morning cleaning, went grocery shopping...did laundry...
Found out yesterday that my friend and the kids are moving to Georgia--near Savannah.  She got a promotion.  She's splitting from her husband.  Can't get past how much he endangered their children and honestly, I totally agree with her.  He isn't sure if he's going to a halfway house after rehab or back to his father's in Syracuse.  She's filing for sole custody when she can.  
I'm supposed to do P90X3 Agility X today, think I'll push that to tomorrow.  I'm pretty spent from these workouts.
The piece that holds my "extra" bit of band on the Garmin broke the other day so it's just flapping in the wind until my new band arrives--Thing One ordered it off Amazon for me.

No issues running the 5K (at sub 6:30/mile pace). There's some residual tightness in right TFL/ITB (mostly the ITB), but the race was pain-free.

Weather today stinks - 45, cloudy and spitting rain. YUCK! Met T to swim. Was not planning on swimming but since she txt I went. I was kind of wore out on this swim. 
I bought a bunch of plants from the schools plant sale on Wednesday and need to get them in pots but its not happening today. 
Started pulling a few weeds in the backyard. 1.5 hours later I finished and came in lol. My little flower garden by the kids playground was way out of control. Had to take the shovel to get the dandelions out. That was more than I thought I would do outside today. I came in and sat in the recliner for way too long after that. I was going to force a bike ride in the late afternoon but I was just not feeling it. Did some much needed cleaning instead. 
Foot feels good today, no Aleeve. Yesterday I took 2 after my run.

A wave of depression hit yesterday and crested today. A wake for a friend isn't helping. Though he was elderly, chose no treatment for his cancer, lived long enough to marry his partner legally and generally had a pretty damn good life. Tomorrow will be better. Some exercise. Some puppy time, some rabble rousing and some grandkids time. That'll fix it.
