A little more strength training, a little less yoga, but still on my #yogastreak. I was bound and determined to get in 3 ST sessions this week since last week I only managed 2, and despite a kind of busy and crazy week, I managed (thanks partially to my husband, who took Chester to the vet twice this week since he had the week off from work).
You don’t have to be a runner to join in & tell us how your week went! So how was my running last week?

- Thursday: Dog walk, Easy 4.5 Xmas Lights Run, YFR Foundation postrun
- Friday: Dogwalk, Rockin Body Abs WU, L&L, Yogaworks PM
- Saturday: 6 miles LSD, Yoga for Runners Foundation postrun
- Sunday: Yoga for Athletes, Building Core Strength & Stretching the Shoulders (which oddly included some IT Band streteching)
Mileage: 14 (+ .9)
70 on Christmas eve? I had already planned to try to get in a Christmas lights run in my neighborhood, but with that weather and the rain holding off, who could resist? Not to mention rocking a sparkleskirt on Christmas eve (it really helps to be Jewish, of course).
Darlene (My First 5k & More) and I met up for 6 miles on Saturday. My “long” runs are faster when I run with her since she’s a faster runner. Although the last couple of months, since I’m not training for anything, I don’t watch my pace.
But the new 2:30 run/walk intervals do seem to speed me up on longer runs. In the dark or with Darlene, anyway, apparently. Some of my runs are still pretty slow.
He did just fine while he was getting laser treatments every day, but Friday may have been his worst day ever (still eating). I wasn’t surprised, since Wednesday was his last treatment. Better Saturday, worse Sunday, and so it goes.
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see a video of him very determinedly walking with his chew Sunday. He did not want to give that up! Lola knows that when I start getting Chester’s midday meds ready she’ll get some food, too, so she abandoned her chew and came running when she heard me doing that. I had to take Chester’s away.

Darlene kindly consented to go see “The Danish Girl” with me (between her multiple holiday activities) on Friday and I really enjoyed the movie — not to mention it’s been almost 6 months since I saw any movie in a theater!
No, I have not yet seen “Star Wars”, but I’ve no doubt that we will once it’s not quite so popular.
We also picked up another couple of chairs (put out on the side of the road for free in our neighborhood) that are similar to the ones I bought a few weeks ago. The ones we bought a few weeks ago are pictured above; the new ones are similar, but more of a blond wood.
I don’t care that they don’t match; now we should have enough chairs for next Thanksgiving.
Any movie (besides Star Wars) that you’d recommend?
