Happy Sunday! Happy Mother’s Day to you, your mom, aunt, grandma, sister, etc. Honestly, I think Mother’s Day should be every single day. Moms are truly amazing!
This week was very similar to last week. I had some great runs which left me feeling more confident. Today was when my body didn’t want to cooperate and I ran half of my 3 mile run. It was windy and chilly. I know it is my choice to run but I just didn’t want to deal with it today.
On Tuesday I ran 4 miles and then 4-45 second surges. The last time I did this workout was April 20th. Some of the paces for the splits were faster this week but also slower than the previous run two weeks ago. That is OK.
On Thursday I did again 5-1/3 mile intervals with the same distance in recovery. I remember waking up exhausted in the morning and didn’t get up till 6:30am. I knew I wouldn’t have enough time for my run so I decided to run after work. I don’t remember why I procrastinated so long but I ended up doing my run at almost 7pm. Maybe that contributed to my “slower” pace than the last time I did this workout (April 22nd)?
Saturday was 6 miles again with one 90 interval/90 recovery after each mile but stopping at 6 miles. Some splits were faster and some were slower than the previous run two weeks ago. I am still pleased with how I did. I’ve mentioned that I like this workout and enjoy running 6-7 miles on Saturday.
This week was Teacher Appreciation Week. I got some great gifts from our administrators. Last year I received a front lawn sign and I still have it! I received a message from 3 students and one of them gave me a balloon, candy, and a plant. But can I tell you that I didn’t get one thank you note from any parent? Nada, zilch, nothing. It must be because they are all fed up with me from removing their child from class and/or letting them know their child hasn’t been turning in their assignments. 😉 😜
The District also sent a tweet acknowledging every single teacher.
The weather has been up and down. Last weekend was warm and sunny. The rest of the week was cold (for May) and cloudy. Yesterday it did warm up a little but but then got cold again. Not sure what happened last night but I saw this today while on my run. The tree was in the middle of the street.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
