Well, here we go again. I finished training for a 5k and proudly met my goal. With no live races on my schedule, now I am going to train for a 10k and run my own race. The goal is somewhere between 1:05-1:06. Excited and looking forward to it!
This week went by fast and it was really a blur. The weather was pretty good for December. It wasn’t that cold which I am happy about.
Wednesday morning I slept in and it was 7 when I got up. By this time I am out running. I knew I didn’t have enough time to do my workout (1/2 mile repeats for a total of 4 miles) so I ran for 20 minutes. I made it home in time to shower and get ready, quickly do my hair for crazy hair day, and log in for my students.
Friday morning I was excited to see a sunrise and stopped to take a picture. However, I am not sure what exactly happened but I took out my phone from my Koala Clip and dropped it. I have a case and a screen protector but I can still see a crack. I was hoping it was the screen protector but it looks like it is the actual screen. Ugh, I hate to have to pay over $100 to fix it. I am not going to do it now since it isn’t that noticeable.
I don’t remember the last time I ran in the rain. It was raining yesterday in the mid 40s with barely any wind. I was supposed to run 5 miles with the last 2 miles at a faster pace. I told my coach that I wasn’t sure how many I would do. I ended up with 4 miles and the last mile was nowhere near my target pace. Honestly I didn’t care. I was glad to be home because by then I was very cold.
This past week was all MAP testing for my kids. Remember, my students take 4 tests in Reading and Math in both English and Spanish. It went a lot better than expected but towards the end they were all tired. One of them was in tears and I felt so bad for her. I hate that they have to take these tests during this time.
Also, we got an email that teachers are to return to the classroom on January 11th and students on the 25th. It will be interesting to see if that actually happens.
Just one more week!
Overall it was another good week of running. I decided to pause my Peloton membership because I have not been taking advantage of it. However, now I am wondering if I should just downgrade to the Digital Membership. I know I should be doing more than just running but haven’t been able to figure out how to schedule it and make it work.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
