What a weird week it’s been. And guess what? We’re getting more snow today. It’s kind of laughable at this point- like just how long will this winter linger on for?
I’m writing this Wednesday night with the assumption that schools will be closed on Thursday. Which means that this week there was no school Monday, an early release Tuesday (for ice), another snow day Thursday, and there is an early release scheduled for Friday (for conferences). We really should have just scheduled some sort of winter break for this week because it was sort of a waste!
Speaking of winter breaks, is it weird that Maryland schools don’t have them? Growing up in New York we always had a week off in February. It was perfect timing between the holidays and spring break. I guess the silver lining is that the school year ends sooner here.
I’ve still been limiting my physical activities to only PT exercises and Alter-G runs while I am there (as long as they are feeling good). Bad timing to get a Vivofit because my steps are pretty pathetic. Even though I walk around the school alot, it’s a really small building and I’m lucky if I get 6,000 steps in on a non-running day.
And on that note, I have decided to not run the Rock N Roll DC half. This shouldn’t really come as a surprise, but for awhile it still felt like it was far enough off that I would be feeling good enough by then to be able to run it. It sucks to lose out on the registration fee, but at least I got a good deal on it because I’m pretty sure I signed up like last June.
Did you see the PRO Compression sock of the month? I got the shamrock socks last year and I was really excited to wear them for the DC half which is the weekend before St. Patrick’s Day. So sad. I guess I’ll just be wearing them around the apartment instead.
Actually, I’m thinking about going to the race to spectate, but it kind of depends on the weather and a few other things.
So that’s pretty much what’s been going on lately! Thanks, Amanda, for the opportunity to Think Out Loud!
Have you ever decided not to run a race at the last minute? Did you still go to spectate?
Did you have a school break in February where you grew up?
