This week was another good week of running. Today is day #79 of my run streak. Remember how last week we had some warm weather? Well, this week it felt like Winter. Not happy about it but it is what it is.
Easy runs are always my favorite but I also enjoy some speed workouts. Tuesday was again 6×2 minute intervals with 2 minute recovery. It went well but I laughed at the end of the workout. I might have walked for another minute to get past 4 miles. I blame it on the last recovery because I walked for the whole 2 minutes. I was really tired.
Friday was another 4 mile progressive run and that felt hard. Not hard that I could not do it but hard that I had to stop a few times. Nothing wrong with stopping but for the past progressive runs I’ve been able to run the whole thing without stopping.
I woke up this morning and saw that it was very windy outside. I had to run 4.5 miles with the last mile at a faster pace. Honestly, I didn’t want to do it. It was in the mid 50s which was nice for November. But that wind. I made it to 2.51 miles. I could not keep going. The wind wore me out.
I did this 20 minute Beyoncé Run. I am not a big fan of her and I thought it was OK.
I guess this week I just felt blah. I woke up Tuesday morning more tired than usual. I had parent/teacher conferences that day and I wasn’t really looking forward to them. After my run, I showered, changed, ate, and went to bed for a few minutes. I thought I had a fever but I didn’t.
Starting tomorrow we are under another stay-at-home order. I get the reason. What I don’t understand is why people are so selfish and don’t wear a mask.
This made me laugh!
Any Grey’s Anatomy fans? Derek!!! I know he isn’t coming back, but it was good to see him.
I mentioned that Tuesday was Parent/Teacher Conferences. I have 27 students and was planning to have 26 conferences. One of my students is new so no point in having a conference at all. Out of 26 students, 22 parents scheduled a conference. I sent them several reminders. The Principal sent several reminders. However, only 13 parents showed up. A few mentioned that they got out of work late or had a prior commitment and got out late. One parent contacted me asking the time of her child’s conference. I told her that she never scheduled one. She then said that she was waiting for me to schedule it. The instructions clearly said to click on the link to schedule an appointment. Seriously, I just can’t. I do want to have a good relationship with parents because after all it is a tough time for them and their child, but I am getting tired of them being so irresponsible.
