How is it already August? A few more weeks of Summer Break and then back to school. I found out that we will start the school year with Remote Learning. While I am pleased with the news, it does make me sad because I honestly am tired of Remote Learning. Also, it will be weird starting off a new school year without being there with the students. I did find out this past week that the cameras will be turned on so at least I will see them during class time.
I am still running on the side streets. No complaints. Twice I ventured out further north to the area where I am interested in buying a house. I ran by the house that I really, really liked and wanted to buy last year. It made me sad. I did see another house for sale by owner and sent the info to my agent. Back and forth messages with him and yesterday he told me that the owner has a contract already. 🙁
My heart rate went up when I saw this. It reminded me of when I fell in January.
I live close to the fire department and they have a small fish pond in the front. It was the first time seeing this since I rarely go in that direction when I run.
I did all of my runs with the Peloton app. I like the variety of music and am liking the instructors. Even all of the talking does not bother me as much anymore. I guess it depends on my mood too.
For my long run on Saturday I did not go to the lake. I ran by my house and took a fun class. Matty mentioned that he was taking us back to our partying days in high school and college. It was fun and I recognized many of the songs! There were songs such has “What is Love? and “Another Night”. There was one by Whitney Houston that I had never heard and LOVED it -My Love Is Your Love. Am I the only one that has never heard it before?
I finished July with 103.54 miles. July has 31 days and I ran 25 of those days. Overall I have been feeling good. I felt some discomfort in my left calf and the bottom of my left foot as well. I remembered that’s what I had experienced before I had plantar fasciitis. At that time I did not know any better and I ignored it. Big mistake. I foam rolled and it felt much better the next day. I’ve also been using my massage gun which has been helping a lot too.
I am excited about August. Excited to see what my coach has for me to do this month. Also, I am working on a few things for school but don’t want to do too much until I know my schedule, list of students, and District’s expectations. I belong to a Facebook Group and have gotten great ideas for my virtual classroom. Here is what I have so far.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
