I went back to work on Monday. Honestly, I did not want to go back. Everyone was tired and it was tough. Looking forward to Spring Break! 🙂
We got a little bit of snow on Monday but no way was I going to run 5 miles. I know it isn’t a lot but I didn’t have enough time either.
During the week the rest of the snow and ice melted. I hate going out in the dark while there is still snow/ice for fear of slipping. I wait till it isn’t dark anymore but then sometimes run out of time. Once I got back at 8:15 and was ready by 8:30am. 🙂
Saturday morning I had to run 7 miles but I was very tired and slept in till 7. Then I couldn’t run because I had to take my mother to the doctor. But I did get out later in the evening. Felt good being out there. I did not feel cold at all. But I did not run 7 miles either. Some miles is better than no miles at all.
I ran 7 miles this morning. I had to run the last two miles between 11:00-11:15. Both miles were done in 11:17 and 11:19. So close and both are positive splits. I still win because 7 miles is a lot to run. I am pleased with how I did because the last time I did this workout was on December 26th and those last 2 miles were done in 11:48 and 11:12.
I laughed when I saw my total mileage for the week. Oh gosh! How did I let that happen? It does bother me but it isn’t the end of the world. I need to pay more attention.
Tomorrow is the day that teachers are going back to the classroom. I keep changing my mind about whether or not to go. I have my substitute lesson plans ready just in case. I will know for sure tomorrow morning. This year is clearly one of my worst years of teaching. I do not feel like I am appreciated nor respected. I hate that our Board of Education does not have any parents or teachers to voice their opinion and make decisions. How is it that non teachers are making decisions for us? They really have NO idea what we are doing or dealing with this year.
