Monday: Rest Day
Tuesday: Ran 4 easy miles in 44:21 minutes, 11:05 minutes/mile average pace. My daughter is with her dad tonight so I scheduled my run for this evening. I arrived home late from work and began my run at 7:50 p.m. I decided to leave the sunglasses at home since it was dusk. big mistake... a bug flew into my eye at about the 2 mile mark and it irritated me most of the rest of the run. However, I was too happy to get to run again so it didn't get me down. Lesson learned: always wear eye protection when running.
Wednesday: Rest Day. This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. On Tuesday, the children were supposed to bring a flower to school. Each student's flower from the classroom would be combined together in a single vase for their main/homeroom teacher. Every year we've cut a rose, usually the first rose of the season, from one of our rose bushes for this occassion. Yesterday morning we were sad to see that none of our roses were in full bloom. I cut this rose (still just a bud barely opening yesterday) for my daughter to take to school. She wasn't thrilled. She purused our garden and found a gorgeous iris to cut/take to her teacher instead. Since I had already cut this rose, I took it into the office. I didn't have a vase with me, so I tucked it into my 26.2 cup, after I finished drinking my Teavana tart cherry tea. Happy that the teacher received our prettiest flower and I got a rose too. win-win!
Thursday: I was supposed to swim today but had way too much other stuff to accomplish. I'm so far behind with work, house work and yard work...
Friday: Today was scheduled as a Rest Day, but I did a good bit of yard work instead.
