I am now officially a certified WSI (Water Safety Instructor) Instructor! I have been in class the past 2 weeks everyday from 5 pm to 9 pm. It was a very hard 2 week time period! I was up at school at 6 a.m. until 4 pm and then driving almost 30 minutes to class downtown and then staying there and either swimming or in class till 9 pm. I had to do this Monday through Friday for the past 2 weeks.
Yesterday I took my written test and made a 96 on it! I am so nervous about this test because I am a horrible test taker! The day before that on Wednesday I had to do my swimming test which I was worried about my breaststroke! That is my weakest stroke, so I was very nervous to do that one in front of the instructors, but I PREVAILED and showed them what I was made of!
We went from having 5 people in the class to only having 3 people in the class. 2 people got kicked out of the class because they were not able to make up the water time! I had to teach 4 different lessons to students and pass that part.
As for my workouts/running the past two weeks it has consisted of none and none! I have been swimming more in the past two weeks then I have in the past 2 years. I swam for 4 hours the other day practicing on my strokes during class in a 25 yard pool. Back and Forth, Back and Forth, Back and Forth! If that tells you anything about how far I swam. We probably went up and down the pool at least 20 times. AT LEAST!
I am grateful that I am certified now, but it was hard! I already have almost 19 kids signed up to take classes from me, so next week I will be getting everything together to start setting up my classes.
School Note: School is almost over. We have, let’s count them…..13 days left starting this monday! Not even two weeks left! While I love my kids, I am ready for summer and ready to send my kids on to 3rd grade. I am ready for a new bunch, although I amy not be saying that next year! I love my kids and they will always hold a special place in my heart!
Question: Do you have any running/working out plans this weekend? Any good races happening out there?
I have my mud run that I will be dressing up 80’s workout style for! I am running with some of my fellow teachers, so I am so excited about that! There will be plenty of pictures to share I am sure of it!
