Sorry I had to delay my post a bit, but I wanted to be able to show off a finished sock, however, I had to do my homework first 🤣
I was principal today so I didn’t get to enjoy running club with the children as much as I usually do as I was busy scheduling TTOCs and preps and checking on everything. We got everything settled in the end and the children did pretty good. We had them run the beep test. They only made it to level 5 so we’ll definitely have to practice this. I’d really like the snow and ice to melt so that we could get a baseline run for them. Hopefully by Monday!
Today was the 100th day of school and I usually make such a fuss and we get to do so many fun activities, but unfortunately we just didn’t seem to have a lot of time today. We read three books about 100 day, we made a mini book about what people brought in the class, we made a class book about what we’ve been told 100 times, and we had a sharing circle so we could show what we brought. In addition, we had gym where we did 100 exercises, we had music and we had a parent who is a welder come in and talk about his job. It was a very busy day, but kind of a letdown as it wasn’t as exciting as I wanted it to be:(. I’ll just have to do better next year!
I ate some dairy after school by mistake:( That is definitely my most vulnerable time. I seem to eat anything without thinking:(. I decided that this wasn’t going to change my plan to go home and go for a run!! It wasn’t a pleasant experience and my phone also died, but I ran and had a decent average pace:)
I was reading some blog posts tonight and was thinking that perhaps I should just start a training plan and then when I’ve completed it, I’ll look around for a race. Has anyone done this backwards approach with success? I should also ask if anyone has a suggestion for a training plan?
I started a new book for NetGalley on my lunch hour (the heroine is already bugging me), but my reading otherwise was my friend Lyndsay’s report cards. We traded today so I read hers and she read mine. Not quite as exciting as my usual fare!
I have completed a sock:). I love it and it fits really well. I however am not loving the yarn, which came as a surprise. It is Madeline Tosh: Toah Merino Light and I am finding that it splits way too easily. As well, there was a break in it:( Ugh I have to persevere though as I’d like a second sock!
Well that’s it for me tonight! I’m off to bed.
