Heading out in the woods this morning for some brush mowing and burning. We had clouds overnight, so everything should be relatively dry. Meant to go down and do some upper body this morning, but got caught up looking up exercises on the internet and never made it down to actually do any of them. Oops. :) Abs are still sore!

Happy Halloween! Went for my first post-baby run today! Not terrible! Especially for a hilly route. Sure could tell it had been 14 weeks since I last ran, & it definitely felt like I was running in someone else's body, but overall it was better than I anticipated. Nothing hurt or was uncomfortable. Well, I could do without the larger breastfeeding boobs, which bounced around even with a good sports bra and having fed him & pumped immediately prior. Oh well! Beautiful morning to run - 52* and sunny. Afterwards I picked Chase up in his chariot to go for our daily walk.

Also went to the YMCA that's 1.25 miles away (& my usual turnaround point for our walks) this afternoon to join. Still have a membership at the gym near our old house because we're locked into a contract there until next October, but we wanted to join the Y anyway since it's so close and has more to offer. I'll probably still go to the other gym before work since it's an easier drive to work from there (less traffic)[...]

6:56am:  Friday!  And Halloween, which, to be honest, does nothing for me.  With the exception of all the candy you'd get trick-or-treating when I was a kid, I've never really cared for this holiday.  I do feel bad for the kids this year, though -- 40*, rain/snow and sustained winds of 30mph (with gusts up to 40mph).  Not going to be a nice day to be outside.  The all-knowing weather people are saying it'll be a "Feels Like" of 20 degrees.
Dogs are going to be boarded today ... made these plans awhile ago not knowing that the weather will likely make trick-or-treaters sparse.  We didn't want to have to deal with the dogs going nuts with the doorbell ringing all the time.  They'll be happier elsewhere, for sure.
And that means that I'll have an exceptionally quiet night.  Dogs gone, roommate is going out... :)

I really enjoyed the challenge of going to yoga 5 days this week, and the schedule was very doable.  However, 5 days/week is a bit much.  I wish I could find a place with a 7am class and I'd go maybe 2-3 days a week.  I looked around at several options and nothing is quite right. If Ted offers this week again, I might do the ala carte method and just go M, W, F.
In the meantime, I need to find and stick to an evening yoga schedule.
As it turns out, daily yoga is not a good way to inspire more running mileage.  October was kind of bust for running.

Happy Halloween.  Have a spooktacular Friday!!
The powers that be in my work place decided that there would be a big phone upgrade last night.  So we all had to leave our phones unplugged for some new push to the routers.  I have the feeling that today will suck monkey balls as no one will be able to get the darn thing to work. Oh it sucks the big fat hairy monkey balls all right.  There is a "bridge line" to call for assistance.  It is a complete clusterfuck.  50 people trying to speak at once and no specific answers.   mess.  AND  they put me on the later person list again.  I just did it 2 weeks ago!!   mess.
Funny story.....yesterday the tech for my mammogram was a really large woman who kept talking about her little dog named Juicy.  Really, who names a dog Juicy?  Anyway, I was texting with Miss Thing and told her about this woman and her dog.....the woman made one of the girls my daughter knew in HS look tiny[...]

Been a rough week to get my training in, so I am a little concerned about my 11 miler tomorrow, but the weather is supposed to be cold, like 40s cold in the morning, so it should not be too bad. I just want to finish 11 in 1:55

Feel better today - might try the run for this weekend. 6 weeks from Sunday to race day! Need to start feeling better. I am better today - just feel worn out very easily... Stayed home again today to be able to rest. This weekend. Hoping for a run and Chris, Matthew and I are going to see the United Kingdom Ukulele Orchestra tomorrow night at the Performing Arts Center. Should be a good show.
