Monday again. Where did my weekend go?
I did have a decent week of workouts. Slowly but surely, I am getting back into a groove. Slowly but surely.
No workout Monday. Tuesday I headed to spin class. It went pretty well and I pushed pretty hard the whole time.
Wednesday was a bit of a different day for me. We were getting slammed with a snow storm, so about half way through the day our district announced they were cancelling all after school activities. Good news for me, I can spend extra time in the gym. At the start of the last period we were told to check our emails though and found out they were planning to send the kids home about half an hour early and planned to have staff heading home by 230. It was a crazy fiasco, the kids went nuts. I helped load buses and tried to help tame the crazy, but it was a lost cause. I left the building right at 230 and my 12.5 mile drive home took me an hour. It was exhausting and terrible and by the time I got home I just did not feel like going to the gym. The thought of running on the treadmill and fighting my footpod that needs recalibrating just did not sound appealing. I did take Griswold for a walk though, then promptly threw on some cold weather gear and headed out the door. Yup, I ran through the blizzard.
I actually really love running outside when the snow is falling. I told myself I’d do a mile just to do something, but I was feeling great and loving stomping my way through 8′ of fresh powder with more coming down, so I just kept running. And I would have ran more than I did if it didn’t get so dark. First big snow fall of the year and it usually takes a couple before people remember how to drive in the snow safely. No running with the crazed drivers during rush hour in the dark and blizzard for me. So I called it at 3.25 miles, sadly.
Thursday was more spin class. I struggled a bit in this class. I didn’t give it my all. And somehow I ended up surrounded by a bunch of new people, which is fine, it was just weird. Lots of new people in the class and I felt like I was in a bubble of them. But after class one of them tapped me on the shoulder and told me I killed it, so that was super nice of her. Didn’t feel like I killed it, but I can take a compliment.
Friday I took a rest day since we had a 5k race on Saturday. Full race report coming for that soon, but I did have a pretty decent race, so that’s that. Not a bad week overall.
This week should be a solid combo of running and spinning. Hopefully our pool is warm enough for me to get in and start swimming again.
Last week of school before winter break. The kids will psycho, I will be a hot mess. Hopefully I can have a decent week filled with trying to actually get in instruction in between children being crazy and get in a few workouts.
Ready, set, here we go!
What are you doing to get ready fro Christmas in two weeks?
Did you/are you doing a holiday race?
