Spin Class Skipper. Yes, I skipped spin class today. What I am about to say may sound like a rationalization, but I swear it is not. Beginning last night, and until Friday, I am cat-sitting. Because I work an 8hr day, and have a doctor’s appointment after work, I felt bad leaving them at 5am. That means they would have been alone for over 13 hours. They are already going to be alone for long days tomorrow and Thurs (class tomorrow and night conferences Thurs) so I honestly just felt really bad. And that is the honest truth…but wow…it really does sound like a rationalization huh?
Cross-Training with Middle Schoolers. This Thursday, our school is going on an ice skating trip. We do this twice a year on the afternoon of night conferences. It is a really long day (half day of work, ice skating and three hours of conferences) but it is also so much fun and I am really looking forward to it. And yes, I am counting it as my cross training for the week!
I Am a Winner!- A few weeks ago, I entered Mel’s give-a-way for hand and foot warmers and I won!!! I was super excited about it because I thought I could use them for the Philly Half this weekend. Last year it was a very blustery 14 degrees when I got to the race and only around 20 degrees at the start. What I would have done for some hand and foot warmers that day!!!! As it turns out, we are having a very Indian Summer here in NJ with temps in the high 60’s and low 70’s; as of today, Sunday is predicted to be a high of 55 degrees with a chance of rain but the weather is A) never right and B) hard to predict days in advance. My guess is, I won’t need the warmers this weekend and can save them for a wintery training run 🙂 Thanks Mel for the hand/foot warmers and the super adorable magnet you also included. You. Are. Awesome.
Ah, tomorrow is hump day…think I am excited for the weekend or what????
