Hey. Sorry to not be posting. I'm spiraling into a frustrated funk & trying to figure what to do about it. I've done PT every day this week, a short Leslie walk maybe yesterday and a Rodney Yee yoga today. I signed up for the in-person 5k as well as a virtual one but I still can't get myself to run.

Just got back from Asheville a very short time ago. We went to Biltmore yesterday and did the tour inside and then spent considerable time hiking in the gardens especially looking at the beautiful flowers. It was quite hilly and there were many steps coming back uphill from the gardens and grounds. Of course there were a lot of stairs in the mansion too so it was a pretty physically active day. Absolutely gorgeous weather too. Pictures turned out well. I ran on the hotel treadmill yesterday and today too. Lastly, we found a lovely hike to do before we left called the Lagoon trail near our hotel. We had miscalculated and really did not have time
to go to the Pisgah Forest or Blue Ridge Parkway for a forest hike but we will do that next time.

Vannie do you have access to a treadmill? Yes they are boring but at least itís a change. I watch something on Netflix. Or maybe a friend or 2 to run with? Just running is kinda boring so I try to change up partners, routes, times etc. Sorry about the funk. Happens to all of us.

Jbliff Iím sorry but could you name a couple of the hikes you did again? Thanks. Are you hitting the 90s yet for weather?

Hi to Cher and Gibbee. Miss you.

Karen, I'm glad you guys had such a nice getaway. It sounds like a fantastic time! Active vacations are my favorite kind.

I do have a treadmill but if I can't convince myself to run outside in the 50s odds are very slim of doing the treadmill! I actually did intend to do that today but just couldn't convince myself. I meant to run yesterday outside while listening to baseball which is my absolute favorite thing to do while running but even that didn't happen. I don't have any friends in town to run with. I appreciate the suggestions though. Sometimes I do wish I had someone to run with but then I know I wouldn't like coordinating schedules.

I probably won't post much while I'm in this mood. I'm okay, just need to work through it.

Vannie I get in those terrible slumps or whatever you want to call it sometimes too. I canít think of anything I want to do.

I did a stint on the treadmill and went to Burn for total body strength. Fantastic workout. Burpees into pull-ups ( I could do one pull-up), pushpresses, farmer carries and more. Iíve heard farmer carries are great for grip and forearm strength.

Tomorrow is May 1 so I can start a new thread.
