It’s the last Friday of the month which means Marcia has opened the Runfessional! It’s also time for another edition of Fit Five Friday hosted by Darlene, Renée, Jenn, Michelle, and me! Let’s get started, shall we?
That it does feel good to not be doing long runs. I leave in the morning early to go to work and then stay late as well. There is still so much to do and not enough time. My room is not how I want it to be but it is looking better everyday. I have a couple of boxes with files for my file cabinet and books for my library. But I am at least trying to run 20, 30, or 45 minutes in the morning.
I hadn’t run for a few days when I went back to work but began again on Monday simply because of another Strava Challenge. This one is for Picky Bars and I have 3 more days to complete it. This will be my second time completing it and am actually excited about it.
That I do not check social media as often as I used to. When I get home I like to watch The Golden Girls and may check it during a commercial break (I watch it on Hulu). I don’t really miss it but feel like I am still on missing on friends’ updates.
That this is the first time that I can remember ever having a full week for the first week of school. In the past we’ve had meetings on Monday and Tuesday and then start with the kids on Wednesday. It’s been hectic and exhausting. I have 22 students but 21 have shown up (one is still in Mexico). Overall, they’re a really good group of kids, but they talk SO MUCH. On the first day a few told me that they like my class and that made me very happy! Now to get them to stop talking so much. 🤔
That I am already looking forward to September 5 which is my day off. Too early to start counting till the last day of school? OK, maybe, how about Thanksgiving break?

I only use Strava for races. I should follow you to give you kudos.
I like long runs but only on Saturdays. I never run during the work week. I just keep my fingers crossed on the weather.
I have to work on Monday. It’s so easy to get spoiling on having a day off.
Good luck with your school year. I hope it goes well.
Thanks, Darlene! I know eventually things will improve.
Ha ha, it’s probably too early to start thinking about the last day of school (although my husband probably is.) Just try to get through to Thanksgiving! I know the first week is stressful- I don’t think it should ever start on a Monday! That strava challenge sounds fun, and much better than trying to train for an ultra at this time of year. Happy Friday! : )
One week down. Thanksgiving will be here soon. 😀 😀
I hope the new school year goes well for you. Hopefully things will settle down with the students, and you’ll be able to enjoy your days with them. I’m not doing real long tubs, either. I have a half in mid-October, which I’m on-track for, though.
Thanks, Kim! There is a 5k next month I am thinking of doing. I mean, it is only 3.1 mile. 😀
Back to school is a crazy time of year. I imagine being in a new school is tough. Are you still ultra training?
It’s just trying to adjust to doing things in a different way. Rules and expectations but I am getting the hang of it. I ask a lot of questions too. I had to stop training. I was too tired to keep up with it. I am bummed about it.
I am just wrecked over back to school. I’m tired, unmotivated, and swamped. I can only imagine you are feeling the same, and then some.
Hugs to you, friend!
