This week I had 5 days of easy runs and 2 speed workout days. On Tuesday I ran 3 miles and then 4-1 minute intervals. All negative splits! Then on Thursday it was the same workout but with 4 miles and 4-1 minute intervals. Almost negative splits again but faster times!
On Saturday I ran 7 miles in the rain. It wasn’t that bad because it wasn’t raining the entire time but it was humid. I was soaking wet when I got home but overall felt good on my run.
I was about to head out with my mother to get a haircut when my phone went off with a weather alert. There was another tornado watch. This time it was much closer to where I live. My sister, mother, and I watched the news and put together a basket with basic necessities in case we had to take refuge in the basement. We didn’t. It stopped raining and it was sunny again. My mother and I ate lunch and then went to get a haircut. The last time I got one was in December and it felt good to get another one. Mateo wasn’t too excited with what was happening.
I wished I had taken a picture before my haircut. It could be the humidity or age but sometimes my hair isn’t all straight.
I mentioned in Friday’s post (still catching up on reading everyone’s post) that now that I have students in the classroom, I can see how much schooling they lost last year. Most of my students are 1st graders going to 2nd grade and they are struggling in reading, math, and writing. Next year I feel like we will spend a few months reviewing that with them. As of now I have 20 students in my roster and that number could change. Let’s hope I don’t have 28 again!
