Another great week of running! The weather sure made it tough but I got it done. The best thing that happened this week was the end of the school year. I was so done with the school year that I didn’t even attend the end of school year parade. I just wanted to go home.
It’s been sunny and warm in the morning and I have to get out earlier. I get up around 4 to use the bathroom and feed my cats. I go back to sleep and wake up at 6am. By the time I get dressed, drink my coffee, and use the bathroom, it is almost 7am. That is the the time I need to be done with my run.
Saturday’s run went much better than the week before. This time I wore a hat and carried two small water bottles. My Oiselle pocket jogger shorts are perfect to store/hold the bottles!
Today’s workout felt hard. I ran 4 miles and then 4-45 second surges with one minute recovery, and then a cool down till I reached 5 miles. The 4 miles were slower than usual. I did manage negative splits on my intervals which surprised me. I did the same workout on Monday and even though I ran 5.02 miles, I finished 6 minutes faster.
I start Summer School tomorrow and I am already frustrated with it. As of now I have 13 students. Communication has not been very good between Administration and staff. I had a meeting with the Principal on Wednesday and another one with the English Learners Department on Thursday. I left those two meetings frustrated and not wanting to work anymore this Summer. We did not get time to plan/set up classroom but yet we’re expected to be ready tomorrow morning. I am planning to spend a few hours this evening planning for this week. And yes I have asked about being compensated.
In non-running nor school related news, a mama pigeon has been living in the balcony. She has been there for two weeks. We know there are 2 eggs. One more week and the eggs will hatch.
Today marks 6 years that I brought Lola home. She was so little! She follows me everywhere. I know she misses me when I leave the house.
Linking up with Kim and Deborah for the Weekly Run Down.
