Oh man, I struggled today. I could not get up at 6 this morning. I did want to get to school by 7 so I hurried to get ready and out of the house. I made it by around 7:05am. There was just so much to do that I still was not ready by 8:40 when the kids came in. I am trying to cut down on drinking coffee (well more like stopping every morning at Dunkin Donuts for a coffee) that I decided to take my own. I took one of those iced coffee from Costco. It is actually pretty good but definitely did not have enough caffeine. I felt it by 10 am. I struggled the rest of the day. At one point I asked my students to sit down and rest for 10 minutes. Actually, it was an excuse for me to sit down and take a break. Did I mention that I was tired? The rest of the day went pretty quickly and I was out of the school by 3:10 pm. I did not want to stay any longer since I wanted to go to the gym.
Fast forward 30 minutes later and I was at the gym. It felt good to be there considering that I had not been there in 2 weeks. I am sure the treadmill missed me. I struggled to run 4 miles but stuck through it and made it. Planning to be there again tomorrow. I got a late start training for the SunTrust National Marathon taking place on March 26. That is OK though. It is not like I am starting from the beginning. This will be my 4th marathon so I have a pretty good idea of what to do and feel that I have a pretty good foundation for my training. At least I hope so!
Send some motivation this way! I definitely need it.
