|Some visuals from the week (clockwise from top left) - a little snow on Tuesday |
morning in Virginia; Mom's beautiful new marathon medal; a sleepy pup; and
a very interesting (albeit somewhat salacious) book
My primary focus for this week was getting started with physical therapy. I also rediscovered my love of the spin bike. The gym recently upgraded their equipment and the new bikes have a media center with different scenic places to "ride" through. Definitely makes my workout a little more fun!
In other news, I am focusing on self care in the upcoming week. I've been feeling a bit run down lately and since Adam was plagued by some head cold crud recently, I'm trying hard to stay well. That means early bedtimes, healthy meals, and focused workouts.
