The days are going back too fast! I like it but then I don’t. We had some great weather this week and I ran 22 miles. Big improvement from last week! 🙂
I deleted all of my records from my Garmin watch. Feels good to see some new records! I went from a 11:24 fastest mile to a 10:50. I am confused about the 10:50 record because I don’t see it in the mile splits from yesterday’s run.
I also got new records for a 5k and a 10k. It is the little things that make my day.
I love my 4 mile runs. Slow and easy since I don’t worry about pace. I tried to do a speed workout on Wednesday but had to stop because I ran out of time. My next one is on Wednesday and I plan to do 6×800.
My run on Saturday was PERFECT. In the morning I had coffee and an Orgain Organic protein bar before heading downtown. I also drank some UCAN on the way. The weather was gorgeous! I felt great too! I didn’t feel sore or tired. Honestly, I haven’t felt this way in a long time. The heel of my left foot was a little sore but then I foam rolled when I got home and it was better. Again, I cannot believe how great I felt yesterday!
I know I’ve written about issues with my mother’s medical coverage and it looks like we have it all straighten out. For some weird reason her Medicaid medical coverage (County Care) was cancelled. I thought she didn’t have medical coverage and freaked out! We were told to go to the Public Aid office and apply again. We went on Thursday and I learned a couple new things. She does have medical coverage. What was cancelled was the long term care which pays for medical supplies and a caregiver. What we need to do now is pick a new medical plan for her. Some options are Aetna, Blue Cross Community, Cigna, and Humana. After that visit, my sister called the Department of Aging and we were able to get a caregiver and medical supplies. Cross your fingers we don’t have any more issues with it.
Beginning tomorrow is when I can start setting up my classroom. This was my view on Tuesday when I went for a meeting.
My classroom is 104. My classroom is on the right side of the hallway so as my kids enter the building, they’ll be on the right side of the hallway and easier for them to get to the classroom. You probably think it is silly but when you have that many students trying to get inside in the morning and after lunch, this definitely helps.
This year we have a new GE classroom for a total of 5 second grade classrooms (3 GE and 2 TR). What is nice is that the teacher in the new classroom is someone that I’ve worked with before and the transitional teacher I will be working with is someone that already works in our school. Due to some changes, her 1st grade TR classroom isn’t available anymore and she moved to 2nd grade. It looks like we will have a GREAT year! I still have 17 students in my roster so I hope that number does not change.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
