Thank you for your comments in my post last week about my mother’s stroke and recovery. Now that school is over, I hope it isn’t as hectic and I won’t feel so stressed out. I am still planning on helping out whenever I can, but at least now I won’t have to deal with the work and stress from school.
This week was a slow week in my running. I felt tired and didn’t feel like running. I finally made it out on Friday. Maybe I felt good because it was the last day of school? Don’t get me wrong, I like what I do. I do enjoy teaching. This year was rough with some of my students. Plus, add in everything else that has to be done (like testing and more testing) and it takes out some of the joy of teaching. My ideal job is for one day to be a math interventionist. I already have my math endorsement but just waiting for a position to open up in my school. I hope soon.
I ran 2 miles on Friday and it felt great.
Saturday I went back to The Arboretum to run 10 miles. It was a perfect day for running but I struggled on my run. Managed to do 7.72 miles. I saw a turtle about one mile in and it freaked me out. Well, not really the turtle (how scary can it be?) but I guess seeing an animal kind of surprised me since I’ve never seen one there.
On Friday I had my students make Father’s Day cards. I know it is a bit early but at least they will have one for that day.
My classroom at the end of the day. A little sad to leave (I will miss my students) but happy to get a break.
Earlier that day I received a email from Brooks Running that really pissed me off. What the heck! I like their shoes and have used them for a number of years and plan to continue running in them. But, yes, I am annoyed.
This is their True Blue Guarantee. Some shoes I have used and returned because, well, I did not like them. Others I returned new because I ordered too many (they were on sale) and then did not need them anymore. I feel like I’ve been personally attacked.
I know, I know, I need to stop worrying about it so much since there are other things I should worry about instead of an email from Brooks Running. At least I can still buy shoes at Running Warehouse. 🙂 Speaking of shoes, anyone see these? So pretty, right?
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
