Fitness Friday…A Day late


Things have been crazy over here. This week was my first week back to school after Christmas break and lets just say that trying to get back into a groove of getting up early, lesson plans, and the students is not easy!

We started a new novel unit this week over “Holes” by Louis Sachar! Most of the students have seen this movie! They are all really excited to read the book, however they keep comparing the book and the movie!


I am thinking that a compare and contrast essay between the book and the movie are going to be appropriate for this unit!

This week, I got a couple of workouts in, but I spent a lot of time with my family. Also, I just finished getting over the flu and did not want to push my body so hard that it decided to relapse.

never try, never know

I saw this quote the other day and I loved it! It takes me back to when I ran my first half marathon! 

Monday- 3 Mile Run

Tuesday- 3 mile Run

Wednesday-Friday- Rest and I was exhausted every time I came home. There were also freeze/wind chill warnings and I would rather be well for my half marathon next weekend, then coughing up a lung!

Saturday- Run 6 miles with friends-I may be running some trails, but I am not sure yet.

This week I plan to run on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and then take Friday-Saturday off since I will be traveling to Louisiana for my half marathon. I have two half marathons in two weekends, so I am definitely going to be taking it easy as not to burn myself out!

Question: How was your workouts this week? Did you get in any?
