This week at a glance:
Tuesday: One of my students tells me that I look pregnant for the first time. I want to jump ship. I guess I'm still in denial and do not want to look pregnant - but the other option is just looking fat. Either way...
Wednesday: Had a great swim - other people actually in my lane and did the workout with them. Best swim yet. Normally I'm in such a rush to get in and out since I have limited time, that I'm swimming alone. Had a clothes breakdown Wednesday night in the closet when I couldn't find anything sufficient to wear for back to school night. Mainly the problem is that my shirts/blouses are too tight and look stupid, so I had to go with this shirt that I have always thought was ugly and rarely wear.
Thursday: My running has been slow this week, my knees have been a bit sore and legs feel heavy. Yesterday was a long day with back to school night. I opted not to tell the parents I was pregnant, as I didn't want any questions about what my plan was for coming back ,who would be the sub, etc etc - things I do not know yet. It was a super longgggg day.
Friday: Today I'm in a jubilant mood, I think because the first class that I teach is my favorite AND they have a test. Hehe. I went swimming and stayed in for 45 minutes since I was here so late last night and do not have much planning to do this morning. It felt good - but my body is tired. I think on Wednesday I went faster with people in my lane and did some pulling and my arms are feeling it today! The jubilance will soon turn into exhaustion and delusion, especially after I teach my 2 least favorite classes in about 1/2 hour.
This weekend my original plan was to do the NYC 18 miler tuneup. I still want to do it, but logistically I don't think it will work out. My backup plan was a 1/2 marathon in CT that is tomorrow morning, but this was an hour and a half from Bill's parents house, and would mean leaving tonight for CT. So my plan is now up in the air. I may still try to find a way to do the 18 or just run on my own on the treadmill one of the mornings. It is so much easier running outside and doing a race when you are trying to maintain your mileage. I could probably also take an easy week after the distance run to recover. My next race is planned for 10/11 - Baltimore 1/2 marathon. After that, it is going to be play it by ear mode.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
I plan to bake at least one of these weekend days! It has been a while.
