Oh, summer. I am so sad to see you go. Really I only work two days this week. I have conference days Wednesday and Thursday then we’re off until we get students on the following Tuesday, but I’m only like half ready. My classroom is not set up at all except for the posters Hubby helped me hang up. And I still haven’t finished my curriculum work yet.
It’s hard to get my head in the game too knowing I’ll only be there for about ten weeks before I go out for baby.
My first summer without a job in like 13 years and my only kid free summer sans job is officially over. It was a good one though, so it’s okay. I’m ready for my students and I’m ready to grow our family. And that time is here.
In other news, our house is in shambles. Our bathroom is only about half finished, all though we can in fact shower in there again. They went as far as to hook up the water and get that shower only functioning, but it feel like a scene out of Dexter because you’re surrounded by plastic on all four sides.
And even though the bathroom isn’t done yet, they have to start the kitchen today in order to get the new cabinets in before our counter tops show up. So now we have a Dexter kill room bathroom and our kitchen is half gutted with all it’s contents in boxes in our living room and dining room. So, ya know, fun times all that.
My training this week was weird and all over the place. Hopefully I can regain some normalcy this week.
Monday I headed out for a run. I did 1.25 miles at a 12:25 pace and felt pretty good actually. It was nice to get in a decent run to star my week off. I didn’t get anything in on Tuesday though since it was the first day of our renovations starting I was home all day making sure things got started on time and that everything we wanted and needed to have done was going to get done.
Wednesday I needed to consider my shower situation had to take place at the gym. I do not handle not showering in the morning well, so instead of waiting until after spinning at 630pm I went to the gym in the morning. I did two miles on the elliptical and some lower body strength work.
Thursday I saw my worst workout of the week. I felt sluggish and hot as soon as I took my first few steps out on my run. Around the half mile mark I stopped to walk for a minute and regain my composure. Started running again, didn’t have a good turn over, caught my toe on a torn up piece of side walk, and went down. I knew I was going down as soon as it happened too so I just threw myself at the grass and landed on the fat part on my hip. The only thing that hurt was my ego. Here I am, giantly pregnant, trying to so hard to keep running, and I go face first down mid plodding shuffle. After I sat for a minute in someone else’s front yard, I got myself up, walked a few feet, then started up my run again and headed right home, clocking in at 1.06 miles of pathetic “running.”
Friday I did not work out. I just could not convince myself to go. I tried, I did, but every fiber of my being coerced me to curling up like a pile of mush on the couch. But we did go to the New York State Fair and walk a few miles around there, then saw Jim Gaffigan who was hilarious. My hips and round ligaments were screaming afterwards, but it was worth it. I love the fair and it’s rare I miss year given I grew up only 15 minutes from the fair grounds. I wish I could go more, in fact, but alas, life calls.
Saturday I opted to give our new treadmill a try. I did 1.26 miles of run walk intervals just to feel out my legs on it, and I felt decent enough running on it, so I’m hoping to run more now since I can do it so easily in the comfort of my house now.
No work out Sunday. I woke up and everything hurt. My hips, my abdomen, my pelvis, my ribs. All of it. Everything was sore. I spent the day feeling sluggish and physically foggy, which included the most awkwardly positioned nap on our oversized chair while Hubs did some cleaning and reoragnaizing. I had started out helping before I fell asleep. I napped hard too. Oops.
This week should be better. Today is a toss up since we have to head to Syracuse for a doctors appointment and our house will again be full of contractors. I’m going to try and squeeze something in though. Tuesday and Thursday I plan to spin, Wednesday I will run after school on our treadmill, and sometime this weekend I’ll head outside for a run.
What was your best and worst work out this week?
Looking for suggestions on cheap, but long tank tops to workout in- go!
