Wow that was harder than I was expecting!
Today was crazy as it was the first day of our new student services schedule. They are taking all children who were approaching expectations in reading and giving them intense intervention this term. I love the idea of early intervention, but it’s only going to work if it’s consistent and that is definitely not a strength of our student services! Fingers crossed it works!
We also tackled place value again and did a mini book about penguins. All in all, a pretty good day, but I was definitely tired!
I got out right after school to do the crunch with my friend L. Usually I do all five parts once, but she just does the stairs multiple times. We ran over and down and up the original stairs and then the new stairs and then ran back to the school. I feel somewhat bad that I am slowing her down, but she’s the one who invited me, so I’m not going to worry about it. I did enjoy it as it was a gorgeous, sunny day:)
The first set of stairs has 437 and the second 459 so I definitely got a workout!
This evening I had my first Battlefit class with my friend Corri. It was nothing like what I was expecting! It made me feel incredibly out of shape:(. We had to do 3 laps of the gym, dynamic stretching, 3 more laps of the gym. Then we did kettlebell swings. We then had to do a WOD (workout of the day) that was just burpees and kettlebell swings. We started at 5 burpees and 30 swings and burpees increased by 5 and swings decreased by 5. I was mad at myself for not finishing in the time given:(. We then learned to do wall balls and had to partner up. One partner went and ran a lap of the indoor track while the other did wallballs and then we switched. This was done 3 times. It was at this point that my legs started shaking. The final sequence for the night was 20 lunges, 20 stop rows, 20 plank shoulder taps and 100 skips. I did this sequence twice. We then got to foam roll, oh yeah😖🙄
This was quite the workout!!!
I am just home now drinking tea and going to tackle the scarf again.
