Heading out on the first mile. Snow is fresh
and pretty because we got 10 more inches :(
I am all done with winter. I will give it - reluctantly -until the end of February and then it needs to end. We had about 10 inches of snow on Friday. The roads were plowed on Saturday but T and I stuck to the back roads away from the traffic. We went 5 miles. This was my first time out since being sick. I was slow and my side hurt a little. But it felt good to be out even if it was a lot of effort to go that distance. I had originally thought I might do the tempo I missed. Well no that wasn't going to happen.
Today when I got up I looked out the window and once again - it was snowing. Good thing I left the Yak Trax on my shoes. We did the "backwards two" miles first on the back roads and then headed out to the "main" road. We went 9, felt like 19! My side hurt more probably because I did a fair amount of stuff yesterday which included a lot of lifting. I am not doing all my stretches yet as some just hurt too much. I just don't have all my oomph back. I hope it returns by the end of the week.
Do you think these guys are sick of winter
too or indifferent?
These were taken today when the snow was so
fresh it was still falling.
I spent a lot of the last few days working on my teaching relicensing. I had two binders to fill with various documents and plans and goals etc. It used to be we just wrote a check and took the right courses. We still write the check( bigger), take the courses plus all this additional work. It changes every time I have to do it so you don't even know what to expect. One of my friends on FB that teaches in another state read my moanings about how I was spending my days. She writes a much smaller check and fills out a simple form. What do other teachers do in their states?
I tried reading She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb and just can't get into it. Should I try longer? It is just so depressing. I am now reading a historical
I have edited my races to include the St. Patrick's Day 8K I will be doing in DC! Yeah! Will anyone be there? I know Dash will be. :) It will be my 4th race, two in New York, one in New Hampshire and one in DC. No, I don't travel for races.
