This week I went to work Monday-Wednesday. On Thursday we had an Institute Day and Friday was Good Friday. Even though it is a public school, we are always off on Good Friday.
The 2nd grade students did another art project. This time we did an Easter Egg Wreath. It was more work and more supplies to buy but the students had fun!

After Sunday’s weather fiasco, it warmed up to do some runs in shorts! I was supposed to run 5 miles on Monday but had no desire to deal with the snow and did my run on Tuesday.
Thursday’s workout was 2 miles warmup, 6×25 seconds intervals with 90 seconds recovery, and 2 miles cooldown. The warmup and cooldown felt more tough than the intervals. I am pretty pleased with how I did though!
It did rain for bit while I was out there but I was home by the time it began to rain more. While out on my run I saw a few male workers. I moved to the other side of the street because I had no desire to deal with any comments/catcalls. Would they have said something? Maybe, I don’t know. There have been a few times that some men have made some comments. So annoying.
We also had some sunny but windy days where it was got cold. On Friday I struggled just to run 3 miles. I am loving again the Brooks Levitate 1. Bought a pair at Nordstrom and purchased another pair from eBay. I like those so much better than the 2s and definitely more than the Brooks Glycerin (sending those back).
I procrastinated my run on Saturday. I slept in till 8:30 and still did not feel like running. I was on my computer for a few hours before deciding to get out. I had to do 8 miles but did not want to do that with it being so windy. I took some Generation UCAN and filled my water bottles with UCAN Hydrate.
It was awful. I was OK for 3 miles and then the wind sucked everything out of me. I almost cried. I wanted to quit. The reason I didn’t is because of my race next weekend. My coach wanted me to do some miles at marathon pace but I didn’t and I didn’t care. The way I was feeling I just wanted to finish the 8 miles.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
