My First Non-Endurance Workout in...(I'm embarrassed to say)

ALLRIGHT.  I decided to head back to Sarah's Monday morning spin class.  I got to her class early (about ten minutes before it started) to make sure I got a bike.  You never know this time of year.:)

I was sweating and puffing for most of the workout.  I've missed this class!  Sarah teaches Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings at 5:45am, and Mondays are endurance days.  Long intervals of climbs, some sprints, and hovers, and we were done.



Hey, Sears/Willis Tower.


I was so excited to get back to work.  I KNOW -- most teachers are all "Noooooooooo ooooooooooooooooo!", but I was happy to get back to normalcy.  My students were awesome all day; they were stoked to tell me what they got from Santa and where they traveled/who they got to see from their family.  What melts my heart is that, no matter what grade they're in, they ask me how my break was, if I got to see my family, and what I got from Santa.  Kids care!<3

To break all of that excitement, I guess I decided to take a creepy picture of me with my favorite food.


My January bulletin board is going up TODAY.  Could I get more corny?!


Got home and had a snack.  Side note:  I missed hummus.  It's not like I couldn't eat it; I just haven't gotten it from the store in a while.


And after letting that digest (can you blame me?), I moved the coffee table and ottoman in the living room, and I threw on a body weight bootcamp class on the computer.  Lunges, squats, and planks -- I hurt.  This was PERFECT for me, just a little 30-minute workout that kicked my trash.


Harry got home from his run right when I was done with the last set, so he got to hear the excruciating sound of my muscles giving up.:)

After a quick shower, Harry and I had leftovers for dinner (my family was recently in town, so we had a ton of leftover food in the fridge to go through) and started taking about our running goals for the year.  For Harry, it's not so much a goal for the events, but more the preparedness for the event.  Basically, he's changing his focus -- it's not the goal of the race, it's the plan and purpose leading up to it that matters.  The results will be awesome.  Kinda smart, huh?

I have a lofty goal that I'm not really ready to talk about; it's that scary, I guess?:)  I love the idea of focusing on the purpose, rather than the result (such as a specific time), so I'll be jumping on Harry's bandwagon there.  My goal is going to take a lot, so I might as well focus on the plan as soon as possible.

I'll probably discuss this goal with you guys really soon, I just need to gather my thoughts and shift my focus.  I will say that my plan for this goal probably includes cutting out ice cream and all things sweet and tasty.  Focus --------------------> shifting. 


In other news, I had a ridiculous thought when many of my students told me what Santa had brought them for Christmas.

  1. I do love all the puns. I tell punny jokes to my little patients and they all laugh. The parents just groan. It's no fun being a grown up, is it?

  2. First Monday was GREAT! It was so relaxing and wonderful just resting in God's peace.

    And I would LOVE to do a half marathon this year. Hopefully I will start training in February.

    Monday back was exhausting. My kids were too.
