Thank goodness for clouds as 72 degrees, 80% humidity and 65 dew point would have felt way worse. Today was hill repeat day and as much as I cannot stand hill repeats I know they are good for me. Physically giving me strength and stamina while mentally challenging me to not stop. Today I did a ladder hill repeat session but the ladder wasn't pace it was distance up the hill. I started with short and fast repeats of about 60 seconds up the hill (close to mile effort) and gradually increased this to 90 seconds, 2 minutes and 3 minutes for the final repeat (close to 5k effort) all with jogging recovery down the hill. Did this for 20 minutes or so. I have to say when I hit that last repeat I bent over and was needing to catch my breath! What doesn't kill us makes us stronger right? Time to strength train and hit up the foam roller!

I know I should be posting more about the structure of the Eht/Aht: a Netivot Wisdom Oracle, but I got a question about Jewish approaches to Tarot -- so I thought I would post about this again. Last time I did was over a year ago!
"Yod—Wands—is the first spark, or desire, to create, coming directly from the Spirit. The first Heh—Cups—receives and germinates the creative urge. Genesis tells us, “There was darkness on the face of the Deep. And God said, Let there be light.” The light penetrates the dark deep, Yod enters Heh. Vav—Swords—develops the original spark, the way the letter extends the short, droplike image of Yod. Finally, the second Heh—Pentacles—shows us the finished creation.”⠀
Rachel Pollack’s Tarot Wisdom by Rachel Pollack. ⠀
The oldest source I know of that references the elements is the Sefer Yetzirah (2nd Century BCE). In the elemental system of the Sefer Yetzirah there is a three element system: Air, Fire, Water. In the world of the Sefer Yetzirah, Earth is a “complex element,” which means that it is created from two other elements.⠀
Here is how Aryeh Kaplan, modern teacher of Jewish mysticism, explains it in his commentary on the Sefer Yetzirah:⠀"The fourth force, gravity, corresponds to “earth.” Earth, however is not a basic element, but a confluence of the other three.19 It is therefore represented by the final Heh in the Tetragrammaton, which is actually a repetition of the first Heh in this name."⠀
Those are the roots of four elements come in Judaism (but there is so much more) and how we work with them to associate, among other things, the letters of the Tetragrammaton with the tarot suits. ⠀
So my vintage deck came in the mail yesterday. I sat and grappled with the idea of not unwrapping it for a few hours before finally giving in and ripping that factory-seal off. After all, I want the deck to actually use, right? I can honestly say that is exceeds my expectations. #tarot#vintage#rws#whatascore#instalove#oldbutnew#myfavoritethings

#CardOfTheDay - The Chariot in Reverse
Today's card is the Chariot in reverse, indicating an area of ego overthrowing progress and stability. This is the seventh card in the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck. Number 7 in numerology represents the repercussions of our decisions and solitude. Upright The Chariot generally symbolizes travel and success. This success usually comes about from controlling the opposing forces in our immediate external environment. We do this by delegating tasks and having a will to combat the external pressures of our lives. When reversed, these external demands may become overwhelming. Things that are out of our control create delays in travel. Certain plans begin to come undone and unravel. I'm encouraged to not let arrogance cause my own recklessness when comes to creating plans and forging the path ahead. Time to find balance on the external plane by stepping away from selfish needs and self-indulgence. 🌙
The Astrological Association of the The Chariot is Cancer, indicating cancers intuition and where of focus all energies towards moving forward.
✨Peace and Love ❤️✨
Mirabelki...wspomnienie dzieciństwa wielu z nas..w tym tygodniu znalazły się w paczce #warzywowo 👍 można zjesc ma surowo ale można zrobic tez #lemoniada z mirabelek. Wystarczy zagotować owoce i dodać ulubione dodatki : miętę, cytrynę albo miód oraz obowiązkowo lód 🍹#bio#eco#rws
De camino..., pensábamos donde ir a recechar, ya que a estas alturas esta algo mirada 😞. Hemos elegido una zona de ladera con abundante vegetación donde podría campar algún corzo y poder ir acabando de cumplir el cupo. 👀
Después de mucho mirar y ya casi finalizando he localizado una corza, que hemos estado controlando por si algún macho estaba por alrededor. No ha podido ser y nos conformamos con poder verla 😅. Finalizamos los doce días de haber podido cumplir el cupo de la temporada, pero no ha podido ser y tocara seguir mirando y que el milagro se cumpla de poder abatir algún corzo adulto-viejo, que tan difícil nos resulta cada año que pasa 😕. ¡Un saludo compañer@s!😉✌ #sialacaza#jovenesporlacaza#cazamayor#rececho#cazaenmontaña#corzo#reodeer#roe#roebuck#hunteress#hunter#hunt#chasse#battue#mauser#sauer#zeissoptics#zeisshunting#rws
Sunday recovery day! How much time do you spend thinking about your recovery with respect to your training? We all worry about how many more miles we can cram into our schedules but we neglect to think about whether we have time to recover from those miles! Just because we are physically capable of running a ton doesn't mean our schedules allow us to recover properly. So next time you think about adding that extra workout into your schedule think less about whether you can cram it in and more about do I have time to recover?
Recovery takes many forms. It Can be an easy bike ride or swim, long walk, really easy short run or just a day off stretching and foam rolling! I love wearing compression socks not only during my runs but also all day for recovery. It aids in blood flow to repair our muscles! My personal favorite brand in socks is 2xu as they sell women's sizes! I also prefer compression style shorts. Right now I'm wearing Athleta All In short which is great for recovery and running!
