Another great week again! Ran 6 days for a total of 20.81 miles. Running 6 days does make me tired but it is manageable. Good thing Summer School is not too hectic so I can relax and take it easy.
Due to the weather I’ve been getting outside between 6-6:30am. Most days I finish my run dripping with sweat. I like to sit down on the steps to cool down before going inside to shower. As you can see most of my photos are of me on those steps.
I ended the month with almost 85 miles. My goal was to run 100 miles. So close. Well, I am determined to get it in July.
Another great workout on Thursday. It was similar to the one I’ve done for the past 2 weeks. This time it was one set of intervals but each one was 15 seconds longer with a shorter recovery (80 seconds instead of 90 seconds). Prior to that I did 3 surges of 15 seconds each with 30 seconds recovery. I liked this workout even more because it was one set of intervals instead of two. 🙂
I finished Deborah’s Run Bet Challenge and “won”. I say that I won because I got the money back that I put into the bet. Happy when that happens.
Wednesday was Mateo’s birthday. He is one year old!!! He is so dramatic but I love him. Ask Lola and she’ll tell you something different. Umm, she hisses whenever he is near her.
Saturday morning was another run on the Lakefront. It wasn’t as humid as the week before but it was still a tough one. Not sure why I am struggling with my Saturday runs. I had to run 6 miles with the last 2 being my fastest ones (around a 10:00 pace). Ha, not even close but not horrible either.
And in non running news, our District sent a survey asking teachers for our thoughts and concerns regarding going back to school in the Fall. I cannot imagine being an Administrator and having to make these decisions. Many things were brought up such as sick pay, procedures for when a child gets sick, quarantine steps, who will teach music, art, PE, and cleaning/sanitizing steps. My main concern is is it safe to go back to the classroom? Do I want to risk getting sick? There is NO way to social distance with that many students in the classroom. I had 18 last year and it isn’t possible. What if I do get sick? What happens then? How long will I be out? Who will stay with my students?
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
