1. I am so glad to be in the airport and know I am on the way to DC to see my girl and help out as much as I can. I can go to her doctor's appt. tomorrow and get the info about her healing process right away! I can offer moral support if it isn't what she wants to hear but I hope it is encouraging! I will see how in the world she is getting around the city on the crutches. I can't imagine it. Pictures to come.
I can't say I mind leaving the snow prediction behind either. It was spitting out snow when I left my yard this morning. I do love the stuff but just not yet.
2. This has been one of the most hectic weeks going. There was so much to do at school to get ready to leave, to get ready for conferences and to just plain teach. I love my team who has helped me out in many ways to make it easier for me to be gone. I took my workout clothes to work yesterday as I was going to run after work. Part way through the day I knew it wasn't going to happen. I got to school at 7 on Tuesday and left at 5:30. Wed. it looked like another similar day plus I had a lot to do at home. As much as I hate saying I am too busy to exercise........yesterday I was truly too busy to exercise. Letting it go lowered my stress. I just couldn't do it and have any time with my husband before I left and get ready.
3. I did run on Monday on the treadmill and it was a great workout. Then Tuesday I was back in the pool. I went from 8 freestyle laps to 11 with all of them involving rhythmic breathing. I wore a swim cap and goggles and felt like an impostor. Each first lap was easy but part way through the second I would find myself swallowing water. But I could see improvements and for some strange reason I am enjoying it a lot.
I know I will swim in DC with Em so that will be fun and different for my visits there. CAN'T WAIT TO GET THERE!
