With school being out last Friday you would think that I would actually be on break this week, right? Nope. It was all work. Well, Monday I went to my uncle’s funeral with my mom. It was actually a nice day (not cold and no rain). The rest of the week was spent in school working on our reading, writing, and social studies curriculum. We had to update pacing guides, curriculum maps, and PBA (performance based assessments). It was a lot of work and there were many times where I was frustrated. We did not finish our work and will possibly be meeting July 31 and August 1.
After I complained so much about the cold and long winter, we had some HOT days this week. Humid days too and then some rainy days. Definitely not consistent here.
I was supposed to run 3 miles on Monday but when I was getting ready in the morning at my mom’s, I realized that I had two sets of running clothes but no shoes. 🙁 So I did 3 easy miles on Tuesday. Later on in the day I went to see my mother and had pozole for dinner. Yummy!
Did you run on Wednesday for Global Running Day? I did! I wasn’t planning on but ended up running 5.34 miles. It had been raining and it was HUMID. I almost skipped the run because of the rain but eventually it did stop. Despite the weather, it was a fun run! Aren’t my shoes cute?
Thursday was 1.5 mile warmup, 2×5 minutes and 3×2 minutes, and 2 miles cool down. It was a tough workout! I did better than I expected and proud of it.
Friday morning I woke up a little dizzy and nauseous and was uncomfortable the rest of the day. I did a few errands after school and then went home to bed. Saturday’s run was tough. I don’t know if I was still tired from Thursday’s workout or I was just simply tired. I am still trying to figure out this fueling thing. You would think that by now I would have figured it out? Nope. Still working on it. I drank one serving on the way to the Arboretum. I also had two gels with me just in case but did not use them. Maybe I need more fuel?
The beginning of the run was tough but then somehow I felt better in the middle of it. But by the end I was struggling again. The last 2 miles were not my slowest but they were my toughest ones. Check out the butterfly made with legos. It has almost 40,000 pieces of legos!
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
