It was quite the day!
Well we went to the district track meet today. Students in grades 3,4 and 5 get to compete in discus, shot put, high jump, long jump, 100 meters, 400 meters, 800 meters, 1500 meters, medley relay and 4×100 relay. We took 39 kids which is a lot less than usual, and it went pretty well! We had one child have three melt downs, we had another go to the park and tell a parent, but not a teacher, and we had two parents drive me crazy about drivers (I hope I don’t get into trouble!). Overall, not a bad day:)
I survived L’s bootcamp after school too. The tabatas increased in length by five seconds. The first four pairs were:
Elevated bicycles/side mountain climbers
Double banded squat to abductors/ banded single arm row
Medicine ball slam to squat jump/ standing crunch
Banded hip bridge/ iso bridge with tricep extensions
We did thirty seconds of frog jumps between each of these.
The next four were:
Banded bench superwoman to abductor/ banded pulse squat with alternate leg lift
Lateral lunge to upright row
Lateral step up with hop
We did thirty seconds of burpees between each of these.
It’s funny because at the time I was super hot, sweaty and tired, but as I write this I want to get up and do more of some of these🤣
This evening I missed my run since I was napping, but I did go to Zumba. The instructor is so happy! I still am going the wrong way most of the time, but there’s the odd move that I’m starting to get. I told my friend Cori that I need some tutorials on some of the moves!
I finally finished Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating. The storyline was good, and I especially liked how the ending showed the future, however, the character of Hazel drove me nuts. She is portrayed as a woman who has no filter and no self control, but she’s a teacher. She wouldn’t last a Day in the classroom without self control and a filter. This drove me crazy through the whole book!😖
I only got one row of my sock done. Just too tired and ended up falling asleep.
Another not great day- I guess I don’t deal with change in routine well.
Breakfast- scone with peanut butter
Recess: grape tomatoes with everything but the bagel seasoning
Lunch: coconut chips
Snack: gummy bears (a student bought them for me when his mom gave him money for a snack at the concession- he even made sure they said gf😀)
