I got a “new” car this week! It’s a 2005 Outback, far better suited for mountain adventures than my ’98 Corolla was. One thing the Outback has that the Corolla doesn’t is anti-lock brakes…yep, I survived 2 Montana winters without them. It remains to be seen whether I can remember NOT to pump the brakes.
We tormented both cats this week….all for their own good, I promise. Thor got a haircut because he is miserable in the heat and was spending pretty much all day curled up around an air vent. He wasn’t a fan of the clippers, probably because they can purr louder than him. Loki had to get dental work…and now he has medicine to take for the next week. It takes both of us to get it in him, and he still manages to unleash the full force of his feline fury. We have a few scratches.
I had a horrible run, but also a good run. I almost never have GI issues, but they came out in force on an “easy” run this week. I had to run/walk the last mile. I didn’t eat anything that morning or anything unusual the night before, so probably just random. The good run was my speed run – I managed my goal pace 2/3 intervals despite a pretty stiff wind.
Went to 3 yoga classes, 2 of them new to me. Finally making good use of my unlimited month. I tried a hatha class and a vinyasa class, and went back to a gentle yoga class I’ve done before. Although I had to leave the first vinyasa class I tried to attend (before class actually started, I’m not rude) because it was a hot class that wasn’t listed as such. If I start sweating as soon as I walk in, I’m not going to survive an hour of yoga in that room. But if anyone wants to start a cold yoga trend, I’m there.
Bottled some kombucha. Because I’m indecisive, I’m trying 3 flavors: cream soda (molasses + vanilla), cardamom mint, and Mexican chocolate (cacao nibs + cinnamon + dried chile).
We went for a short hike this weekend, no runs, because I was feeling pretty crappy. I caught this picture of Kara with her ears mid-flap. If that doesn’t make you smile on a Monday I’m not sure anything can.
What’s your favorite kombucha flavor?
Hot yoga or cold yoga?
