Does it finally feel like Spring where you live? Mother Nature is definitely cruel. While we had some nice weather this week, Chicago got more snow on Saturday. I was out of town but still couldn’t believe it.
On Thursday we went to the zoo. Originally we wanted to go on Friday but there weren’t district busses available to take us to the zoo. It was great on Thursday. The weather was perfect and it wasn’t crowded.
I was EXHAUSTED by the time we got back to school. We didn’t walk a lot but still. One of my students told me that it was the best day ever! 🙂 It was so sad to see the polar bears. One of them was trying to sit but couldn’t. Walking was another story. The bear could hardly walk and it was sad. ☹️😞 My coworker sent me this article. I think it was the bear we saw. No pictures other than the bear and the gorillas. Not sure why I didn’t take more pictures.
My best workout this week was on Wednesday. It was 1.5 miles warm up, 5×2 minutes intervals with 2 minutes recovery, and 1.5 miles cool down for a total of 4.64 miles.
I got some new socks. How is it that new socks make me happy?
As of Friday, we have 25 days left till summer break. I am excited! However, I will have one week off before I start summer school. I am looking forward to it too. The hours are great and my last day will be July 6th.
On Saturday I flew to Philadelphia and then took a shuttle to Wilmington, DE for the Delaware Half Marathon. How is it that one can pack so much for a one day trip?
Once at the hotel, I picked up my bib and went to get something to eat. The restaurant I went to was about 5 minutes from my hotel. I had a chicken wrap with fries and a beer flight.
My coach asked me to do a 20 minute shakeout run. That didn’t happen. I was too tired from the trip and the food made me sleepy. After my nap I met Kim for dinner.
Time to run 13.1 miles! I will have my race recap on Tuesday.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
