Let’s start this review with the weekend. Saturday night we went to the Snowshoe Shuffle, an event put on by the local animal shelter. We snowshoed a short trail around the ski resort with a pack of other humans and dogs. Somehow, I missed getting a picture of Kara with any of her 50ish new friends. Instead I just have this photo of her taking a break to eat snow:
As you might surmise by the lighting, the Shuffle started a bit before sunset and we got done not long after sundown. Unfortunately, it was completely overcast, so we didn’t get to hike off into the sunset. No complaints about these views though:
Continuing backward through the week: I also got in a short run earlier on Saturday. I had to skip Friday’s planned run because of some vertigo. But Wednesday’s “long” run was my best run in a while. I planned on 5 miles, but between missing a turn and accidentally changing my route (not sure how that happened), I ended up with 5.5. AND I wasn’t exhausted afterwards. Maybe it was the views…
The rest of the week went uneventfully as planned (uh, on the workout front. The work front was a different story.) I did a yin yoga video for the first time in…probably months? I love yin because it forces you to slow down, but most classes are at least an hour long. This video is one of my favorites for a shorter yin practice.
Keeping it short this week…it’s only 8:30 and I’m ready to sleep!
Have you ever participated in a snowshoe event?
Have you tried yin yoga? If not, maybe it’s time to try the 20-min class I linked up above…
