Hey there! How is everyone doing? Did you all have a nice Christmas? It was low key here again. I made mole with my mother and it turned out good. It needed a bit more chicken flavor so we spiced it up the next day and now it is even better. Mole always tastes better the next day.
It was nice to be off this week. I did relax and finished watching The West Wing. I wasn’t too crazy about Season 7 but overall enjoyed the show. It was so sad about Leo but it made me happy to see a Latino president. One day. One day. 🙂
I ate leftover pozole from my cousin.
Relaxed with the cats.
Wednesday morning was a “fun” run. I had to do 5 set of intervals (5 minutes/6 minutes) at different paces. It was windy that morning and didn’t think I would complete the workout. Once I was out there I realized it wan’t that bad. I did better than expected. My coach likes to remind me that I am tougher than I think and that I can do more than I think I can. 🙂
Thursday and Friday was COLD. I had to run 3 miles on Thursday but instead ran 20 minutes. Since I didn’t run the 3 miles on Thursday, I knew I had to do it on Friday. Ha, had to? No way. I talked myself into doing only 1 mile to continue with the streak. Today is day #121. I was this close to ending my running streak because of how cold it was.
Saturday’s run was 7 miles. I woke up very early and was out the door at 6am. It was 19 degrees but I had two tops, two pants, and gloves and felt comfortable. I felt tired but also good after my run. Such a weird combination.
Tuesday morning my coworker and I delivered presents for our students. It took us almost 3 hours to deliver 44 presents. I met a few of my students and almost cried because I was so happy to see them. I gave them a notebook, pencils, markers/color pencils, crayons, and highlighters. Students are supposed to go back to the classroom on January 25th but I don’t know at the moment how many of those will be my students.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
