So once again, I sit here on a Sunday night.....doing the laundry.....checking my plan book for the school week ahead. Basically taking stock before the week begins.
Now that the first week of May has come and gone, and it's now been 3 weeks since the Boston Marathon, I feel ready to actually start training again. I don't have a schedule to work from, and I won't start training for Hartford until the 2nd week of June, but I think shooting for 25-30 miles a week over the next few weeks should be attainable, providing I stay focused.
And therein lies the problem.........as the school year winds inexorably down to a close, the pressure to get things done becomes more and more prevalent. Curriculum needs to be completed, and as I'm going to be changing teams next year (and moving from teaching only 8th grade to a "split" team teaching both 7th and 8th grade), I've got preparations to start making for the coming school year. It's going to be a busy few weeks!
So I think the best thing for me to do, running-wise, between now and the end of school is to get back in the swing of things and get out 3-4 times during the week and both days on the weekends. A very simple solution........now I just need to shut up and DO IT!!!!
Congrats to all of you who got out there and raced this weekend, like Sara (http://rungingerfoxxxrun.blogspot.com/) and Felice (http://thehappyrunner.blogspot.com/), as well as all of you who just got out there and ran just because....
Have a great week everyone!
