busy and tired...

... seems to be the story of my life lately.


Today was another day of "training" at school. I won't go into details, but it was a bit stressful and overwhelming... more so with the complaints, not actually the training itself.

But, I managed to get up at 5am and go to the gym for a nice half hour run. I did some intervals, working on speed, and then I did a wide variety of weight machines.. focusing on the lower body.

Tomorrow I am taking a rest day. We have work, and then open house in the evening which makes for a long day. I would rather get an extra hour of sleep during the night and be rested to meet some parents and students.

I don't even have the energy to read blogs. I will start, read a few, and then quit. I am sorry. Hopefully once I get settled into the new school year, I will be back at it.

Today's Song: Something Corporate - I Want To Save You
(absolutely LOVE this song!)

ORN: 2.81 miles, 30:00, avg. 10:40/mile

Enjoy your rest day. That's the sacrifice of waking up at 5am today! :)

Hang in there... these crazy days will pass.... You deserve that rest day! Enjoy it. Just take it easy to recharge. I don't know how teachers do it this time of year!

I give you credit for getting up so early and then making it through annoying people who CAN'T SUCK IT UP and HANDLE CHANGE!!!

Those first couple of weeks back to school are always so taxing. You will get through it. Enjoy the rest.

Oh man I hear you on tired. I feel like I've been getting zero hours of sleep instead of 7 or 8 each night...

I hear you about being busy and tired. I've been way too much of both this week. I'm ready for the weekend!

Once again, we put up nearly identical posts. Soooo tired on this end too. I know that rest is so important, but darn, I feel guilty! If I rest today, that will be TWO rest days this week and well, that's one too many for me right now. There's always the danger of 2 building into 3, 3 building into 4! Ack!!!

Enjoy your day off!
