I have been home since Monday. I spent most of Monday and Tuesday preparing lessons for my students using Google Classroom. I prepared 8 days of lessons. “Last” day of school is March 27 and then we are off for Spring Break. At the moment we are scheduled to go back on April 6th but that can change. In some states schools are closed for the rest of the school year. Also, CPS will be closed till the 20th. My district will most likely follow CPS’s plan but so far haven’t heard anything about it.
What I am not liking about this is that my students have not done the work nor turned it in. On Friday I gave them all a folder full of worksheets. I also told them to go to Google Classroom because I would be leaving additional work there. One week has gone by and only 5 students have logged in. Maybe 2 or 3 have turned in the work. I am trying to be understanding and patient. Maybe they’re all working on their worksheets? Who knows?
The two weeks after my half marathon in Atlanta, I did not run at all. First, I was recovering from said race. I felt better by Thursday but still did not want to run. Then I was just tired and wanted to sleep. Before I knew it 2 weeks had gone by and I told myself to snap out of it. I did and ran on Monday. Not too long but a little over 2 miles. My pace was slow but I did not care. I ran again the rest of the week except on Tuesday. My goal was to run each day longer than the day before. I did it!
I ran by the area where I fell in January. Well, I walked.
It was gloomy most of the week and I got tired of it. I think one day it was cold but not windy. I wore an insulated jacket and ended up being too warm. It is now my favorite jacket for running on cold days.
Being home all day I saw just what my cats do all day. They sleep all day.
Lola prefers to hang out with me than Mateo.
This is my favorite one. They were both waiting for me after my run yesterday. OK, enough cat photos for today. 🙂
I had planned to run 3 races from March-May and they were all cancelled. Right now the race I have in my calendar is in July. So for now I will continue to run. Since now I have more time, I am thinking of using again the Hansons Training Method. I already printed out a 16 weeks schedule. I know it is an intense plan. Will I run 6 days a week? Maybe. Maybe not. I might just run 3, 4, or 5 days depending on how I feel. Right now I need a plan so I can keep on running. I know there are other plans I can use, but I’ve used this one before and like it.
So what else did I do this past week? My mother was here this week so I spent some time with her. I made the mistake of watching “Outbreak” and “2012”. HUGE mistake. 🙂 I have a TiVo in my room and have been catching up on a few shows such as Chicago PD, Bull, and Hawaii Five-O. Quite a few episodes were from September! I have yet to finish Hawaii Five-O, Young Sheldon, and NCIS. Yep, will be busy for the next couple of weeks!
How are YOU? How was your week?
