Last night was parent conferences. Today I spent the day pooped and overall cranky. It started with a swim, and usually I take an end lane but today some big older lady was in it. I had to go to the middle and ended up next to some dude who obviously thought the olympic trials were going on. He was sprinting EVERYTHING, and his splashes were making my lane like a wave pool. It wasn't the best swim ever. At school, the kids didn't even stress me out, dumb things like spilling water or forgetting something I needed when I got to another room were annoying me today. I read Aron's post on the positive Wednesdays and thought that was a great idea! I have off tomorrow for a Jewish holiday, and all I want to do is sleep. But instead, I need to:
-Go food shopping
- Buy more long sleeve tops (now that it suddenly became cold, my purchases of last week aren't so helpful)
- Do a bunch of lesson planning
- Pick up my car from the shop
- Go visit Babies R Us so I'm not behind on getting whatever we need
- supposed to go visit a daycare place, but that stressed me out last week, so I'll bag that hopefully
- whine whine whine
And of course, run!
I did some research into what I would need to do for the next 7 weeks and here is what it looks like:
I'm already running everything here, except I just need to make my long runs a little bit longer. It sounds way too easy. I think it is totally do-able, I just want to ask my doctor about it first! Also, now I'm almost 21 weeks, that will be 27 weeks, alot could change with my running by then right?? More pee stops? Slower? But I think I might just sign up anyway, and if I need to downgrade, I can do the 1/2 marathon instead. It's a loss of $25 bucks. I can deal with that. I've been letting the idea run through my head this week, and on the way to yoga today (Wednesday yoga is not as enjoyable - different teacher) there was a huge ad for the marathon on a bus. Coincidence? I think not! It's just that I can't find too much research on it.
Yesterday, I absolutely had to get up and run in the morning since I wasn't going to get home until 8:30 and wouldn't have time to run and shower in between school and parent conferences at night - but I was thinking more deeply as I lay with my cozy covers about changing workouts to the afternoon.
Pros - sleep in, more energy, less warmup time needed.
Cons - sometimes things come up - so it's harder to fit in, you don't have that endorphin boost all day long!, more time to think about it - (do I really feel like running?)
What else can you add from your experience?
