I love that I was able to do all of my workouts this week. So many different weather changes this week. I was hot on Tuesday and then cold by Saturday.
I ended the month with 29.46 miles. It was my second lowest after February which was 21.52 miles.
I had a committee meeting on Tuesday and didn’t have to be at work till 8:30. I got up to run since I thought I had a longer workout but then realized I had to run 3 miles. I kept putting it off thinking I had time, since it was “only” 3 miles, but then lost track of time and did not run. I did run later in the evening but it was 90 degrees. Man it was tough!
I actually enjoyed my workout on Wednesday (2 mile warmup, 1×8 minute intervals with 2 minutes recovery, and 1 mile warmup). I was out by 5am and it was nice to be out in the dark and quiet. I have been struggling to be out there running in the morning but once I am there, it is kind of relaxing. I feel like I am in my own world with no worries.
I was cold Friday morning to run 3 miles. But I still wore shorts. 🙂 During my run I thought about my kids. I have 16 total but only 3 are reading at grade level. A few are close to grade level and the rest are reading at the beginning of 1st grade level. Every year it is worse and we don’t understand why these kids aren’t reading at grade level. Is it a language issue or a learning disability? I have an interventionist coming in to work with these kids but only 1 (maybe 2, still need to get confirmation) will be pulled out for additional support. Why aren’t the other students receiving more support? Who knows? But I do know that some interventionists are also working with some 5th graders. Huh?
I procrastinated on Saturday for my long run. I don’t like doing that because then things happen and then I don’t end up doing what I intended to do. I went out at 11am to run 6 miles. It was sunny but not too cold. I wore shorts again. It is beginning to look like Fall!
I am glad I did all of my runs this week. My plantar fasciitis is definitely much better and I am happy about it. Two weeks to go till the Detroit Free Press/TCF Half Marathon!
