Rest Day...again

RR: Rest day. Wasn't planned. That is for sure.


It's been a while since I haven't run on a wednesday. It just works so perfectly to get to the gym after school at about 430 and workout until 6ish. Just enough time to shower, grab a sub, and get to class by 7.

NOT today. Let's just say this one was NOT my fault! Here's why:

  • I parked in the garage last night.
  • After the day had been filled with snow, that somewhat melted, leaving some sort of junk we like to call heavy slush.
  • Temperature dropped from 35 degrees to 1 degree overnight.
  • Garage door was stuck this morning.
  • Had to catch a ride from a co-worker.
  • Got home at 430...attempted to de-ice it.
  • Got sis' help to pry it open.
  • It worked. Thank goodness.
By then it was almost 5 and I had lost all ambition to drive all the way to the gym, run, shower, and eat...all before a three hour class. I think it was a sign from the paper-work god. Instead of running, I got an IEP updated and ready to be mailed out to the parents! Wahoo!

I guess everything happens for a reason... even if it is a pain-in-the-butt!

Be Strong...Live Life....

YIKES! That is cold!!!! It was 50, extremely windy & seemed like it was 1 degree in So Cal and I thought I was going to freeze. Light weights.... I know. I sure love the sesaons though, which we really don;t have. Stay warm and enjoy that much deserved day of R&R!

I can't even imagine having to deal with that kind of weather! Glad you got some work done instead! Are you a special education teacher? They used to write up the ieps where I taught.

Doesn't winter suck??? It's been 60 every day here, which is really, really strange (Cleveland). But the weather is supposed to hit us tomorrow, so I'll be in the same boat as you soon.

OMG! That's so scary. At least you did not have go out early uncover the car covered with snow.
