This puzzle represents a project I am undertaking at the encouragement of my life advisor. Not to be cryptic but it isn’t what it may seem. As always, I will surely share the culmination. Disregard the unicorns. Trust me.
I need sunlight! After all the ice, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to be outside. It also prevents my butt from conforming to my desk chair. (Ode to the post title. Keep reading.)
As I hadn’t run since mid-January, I fully expected it to be the toughest thing to do that morning. Instead, I have zero complaints. Just what I needed. There was this incredible tail wind pushing me along at first and by the time I turned around, running into the wind, it was warming up and just what I needed.
The following day(s) I could definitely tell I hadn’t run in awhile because my quads were super sore. No matter how hard I try, that’s the area that always gets sore. Mehhhh. I could really use a few more snow/ice days to get things done but I dislike being stuck inside.
This week’s goal: run a few more times and seek sunlight. I’m basically a houseplant.
I ask you –
Are you working on any projects?
For my runner friends, are you quad-dominant? Any tips?
If you were a plant, what would you be? Elephant ears. Majestic and green and takes up a lot of space!

Love this! I’m heading to the gym to log some treadmill miles — it’s been a lonnnnnng time since I’ve run any distance. My quads and glutes tend to get sore when I’m getting back into the swing of things.
Current projects: renovating a home that we’re selling in a few months, packing, and starting TONS of flower seeds in soil blocks. 🌻🌻🌻
You have big plans!

For real. 🤣 The best part is that we don’t know where we’re going to be living this summer! Residency life is… umm… special like that. 🥴
Oh wow – sounds a little like military life.
