The Return of the Long Run-
May has brought with it the return of the long run. Nothing crazy as I am still easing my body in, but I have gone out and run 8 miles on my trail each Saturday this month. There is just something about waking up and hitting the trail for a long run that makes me so very happy. I know my long runs will begin to get longer and longer as marathon training kicks in, but right now I am just enjoying that I am able to run more than a mile or two at a time.
My First Race of 2016 –
This month I also got to complete my very first race of 2016. I am running the summer 5K series at Race the Landing again this year and am happy to be back. After setting a 5K PR in this hot summer race last year my goals were very different this year due to my lack of running and loss of fitness. I just wanted a to finish under 30 minutes and boy did I have to push and fight for it (it is amazing how much fitness can be lost from year to year) , but in the end I was so happy when I was able to hit my mini goal.
The Last Full Month of School –
There is not much else exciting to add this month as May has kept me really busy wrapping up the school year. (We are officially finished on June 3rd.) There has been all sorts of end of the year testing, but also tons of fun year end projects. Over the past week I have organized egg drops with the fire departments at three different schools (I’m a traveling teacher) as a final project for my 4/5th graders motion and design unit. I have been so busy with school that I have just come home and crashed at night and on weekends.
