First Day of Summer Break

After my swim this morning, which I might add was very nice to get back into the pool after a break that was too long, I spent a good amount of the day back at school. I couldn't have picked a better day to do so as it rained most of the afternoon.

With another special education teacher retiring this year, I was given the option to take her room or continue sharing with another special education teacher. I was all over having my own room. Little did I know, the teacher who left, took what she wanted and left everything else behind! I have so much work cut out for myself this summer. It's going to take a while to go through her stuff and organize my things as well. I am anal when it comes to organization and I will not start the school year with a cluttery mess in my room!

Tomorrow I will spend a few hours there as well. Should be fun times... fun times fo sho!

On a side note, I forgot to mention that on my ride yesterday with the Scheel's Cycle group... I biffed it. Yep. I went down. First time for everything right? We were coming through an intersection, taking a left, and a few of the guys ahead of me decided to ride up onto the grass to wait for those that were really far behind me. So, I di the same, although the grass was really soft and I almost lost my balance and trying to save myself I took too long to decide what foot to take out of my peddle, taking my left foot and starting to fall to the right. Boom. I went down. In the grass. I was hoping that my first fall would involve some good blood and eventually a couple nice scabs to share with you all, but all I had was a couple marks on my calves from the tires. Damn.

OSN: 1000M
10x50M Warmup
5x100M, 30 second RI

Good work in the pool! Sorry to hear about 'biffing' on the bike! Hopefully the first one is the only one.

Neese said...

your are hard core, wanting the first fall to involve blood and scabs lol

and btw, I have some extra baggage above my hip bones that I'm hoping diet and running schedule will help eliminate!

Viv said...

Great swim!
Yea no more falls on the bike. I know what you mean though I like it to be hardcore just not hospital hard core. I still tell my rib fracture story often. LOL!
I am so glad you found me, since I love to follow other tri peeps blogs.

Wes said...

Ha, ha, ha. Biffed! ROFL!!! I landed in a GARDEN my first time :-) We ROCK!!

Falls happen. Especially on bikes. For me, they also happen when on foot.

akshaye said...

Ah.. first biff. Happens! I almost hit the wall in my first one cause I could not unclip.

Sucks on the cleaning up job at school. Hopefully you can pick a few more rainy days to get through that.

Great swim!

I first biffed right in my driveway the first time on the bike.

That's awesome you will have your own room next year -- hopefully the clean up won't take too long.

I wouldn't be too disappointed about falling in the grass. Sure it didn't leave you all bloodied up with war scars to remind you that you're a tough biker chick now, but it hurt a lot less than biting it on pavement. :)

Marcy said...

Were there some hot dudes around to help you up? That always makes it worthwhile ;-)

Molly said...

I am the same way with organiztion!
GREAT swim! If you don;t mind me asking, how long did that take you!
Take Care

YOu are doing very well in the pool. I'm glad that you were OK after your fall. Keep up the good work on your training.

P.O.M. said...

I'm glad your fall wasn't bloody!

I dated a guy that didn't call me after on of my races... tell tale sign to dump him. Even the Captain called me before, during and after my last race (and we were broken up!)

Gotta Run said...

So you have no real scraps to prove your fall?? I can bet you will have a chance again one day soon:)

It happens to the best of us!!

Enjoy you new class room but enjoy your summer off MORE!!

L*I*S*A said...

Isn't your first fall somewhat of a rite of passage with you cyclists? Glad you came out unscathed!

triguyjt said...
