That books sounds intense and fascinating! 😳🧐I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of it 


I'm more than halfway through it, and have really been enjoying it. It's my first audiobook, and I'm really liking it. I think especially spending so much time at home, it's nice to have something like this while I'm doing chores of something.

Congrats on the promotion! It's great they recognized your work.


Running in the (warm) rain is fun if it isn't too muddy.  How is the footing on the trails around you?


That particular time, I was on a paved bikepath, so no problem. In general, our trails can get muddy, but they aren't too slippery (until ice becomes an issue). We have rocks and roots to deal with, but the nearby terrain isn't too steep and we don't have much clay (many years back I lived in Hawaii and that could get really slippery).


Thanks everyone for the congratulations!


Super-brief challenge debrief...I had 3 goals.

1. Quick strength workout. This went well. I just finished the 8-week program and think it's good. I'm re-starting it and have set up a log so I can get a better idea of if/how I improve over time.

2. Stretching/mobility. This was a vague goal, and my effort was really patchy. Improving my mobility (and decreasing my achy-ness) are things I really would like to work on. Over the holiday challenge I'm gonna get back to spending time each day sitting on the floor. I also bought the GMB mobility program, and will try working that into my routine (won't do it the recommended 6 days per week, at least not to start, but will watch some of the initial videos and think about how to fit it into my week).

3. Calorie counting (stay under 2300 at least 3 days per week). I did well on this 4 weeks out of 5, and I've lost about 3 pounds. This is working reasonably well, so I'll keep going with it.


I'm too lazy to post a link, but I have a thread up in the holiday challenge. See you there 🙂
