Although you probably already know that 🙂
A quick Friday-Five because I’m pressed for time today – we are leaving for Toronto tonight and I have to work a full day today (so sad right? j/k), so I’m running around trying to get a few things done.
YORKVILLE RUN! After a 3 month hiatus, I finally get to race this weekend. I have zero goals for this race, I didn’t even bring my Garmin. I’m not in 5K PB shape right now because my pacing has had to drop significantly with marathon training. I’m pretty sure I can manage anywhere between 27-28 minutes, but as long as I’m under 30, I’m good. I have a half marathon coming up in two weeks plus a whole pile of longer runs, so no need to risk an injury. I hope to see a few of you there!
First week of school is done! It has been a bit of a busy week. I currently teach just one class, but have been covering a drama class all week as they had to hire someone late in the game. Good news, they hired a friend who was our main supply teacher at last year’s placement. I have also been covering other classes too. Today at lunch I have a coaches meeting for Cross Country – I’m excited that I will get to coach XC again.
Speaking on coaching – track starts up again this week. I will be coaching on Thursdays this round. I’m looking forward to getting back to coaching. It has been a long month!
We haven’t had many 30+ temperature days here in Ottawa this summer. This has been great for running! Yesterday it was 28C with a 33C humidex. Of course I went running at 1:30pm in the blazing sun for 1.5 hours. Yeah, to say it was tough is an understatement. It was a pretty brutal run. I was covered in salt too which is pretty gross. But 12K done! I’m not on rest for the next two days, yay! I will have to run an extra 4K at some point on the weekend to keep on track of my weekly mileage.
I have had no pumpkin spiced anything yet. No Pumpkin Spice Lattes, no pumpkin muffins, no pumpkin pie. I feel like I should wait just a bit longer before I jump on the pumpkin bandwagon for another year. Odds are, I will wait so long that I will eat an entire pumpkin pie in one sitting….
Have a great Friday! If you are running the Yorkville Run, let me know 🙂
