Playing Catch-up

Work:
Friday's staff development sessions went well. As usual, some are more worth while then others but overall it was okay. My afternoon session was nerve-racking. Like I stated previously, we were presenting to the school information on RtI and how we were going to start implementing it. It went well. The teachers really didn't question anything, so it will be interesting to see how things work out in the next few weeks.

Fun:
After work on Friday a handful of us met up for apps and taps at a restaurant. We used to do this last year on pay-days (not all of them). It was fun to catch up with people and just enjoy a cold one.

Saturday afternoon my sister and brother-in-law came to town and spent the night with muah! We went out for a nice dinner and afterwards, since we were in the area, we headed to my uncle's house with the thought that some other family were in town. Sure enough, the driveway was full of cars and we ended up staying for a few hours... enjoying a few drinks and a handful of laughs.

This evening I will be heading to GF for the first SIOUX hockey game... exhibition game. I can't wait! Hopefully I will have pictures to post later.

Workouts:
Yesterday I had a 30 minute swim and spin session on the calendar. I was going to work on some speed intervals in the pool and when I realized that it was going to take longer than I expected (with the rest breaks) I cut it down a bit. Aftewards I headed to spin class and thoroughly enjoyed myself! I need that ride to prepare myself for next weekend's Breast Cancer Awareness Ride. If your interested in participating yourself, check out the website and see if they are offering one near you!

Today, after my sister left I headed to the gym for a run. I wanted to do something longer but I just couldn't push myself. My hips were sore from the bike and I wanted to be able to run again tomorrow, so I kept it short. Plus, I was overheating like crazy. Blech.

Later dudes.....

Sounds like good times and good workouts. Nice weekend!!

Kevin said...

Lots of great stuff! Hope the hockey game is good

I have been over heating also. Usually this is the point where I would push you to do more miles, but if you can avoid injury and you know when to stop, the choice that you made is a way better option ;)

I am so excited about your upcoming ride and I can't wait to read a post-ride report. I 'just' signed up for my first ever supported road ride this morning. It's the Tour de Cure on March 1st and I selected the 60 mile route. I'm so darn excited about it, plus it's always great to 'ride for a reason' like you are. :o)
