I can't express how happy I am that it is Friday, and that my last class of the week is officially finito -- I am SO ready for the weekend.
Ever since we got home Monday night, this week has been a flurry. I got behind with students and grading while I was away, so I've been eyeball deep in papers for the past 3 days (which has me convinced that when I die, I won't be buried in dirt -- I will be buried in paper), and I need a little space from school. Even though, who am I kidding, I never entirely get away from it; trust me, about 50 of those papers are coming home with me for the weekend.
Anyway, I have fun things planned for the weekend -- date night with hubby on Saturday and I'm going to see the stage production of "The Wedding Singer" with some friends on Sunday. And somewhere in there, I'd like to make a debut run(s). However, I'm gonna keep 'em short and I am not running with the group at 5 am -- this weekend, I'm sleeping in!
I haven't run AT ALL since the "defeat in the heat" last Sunday and I'm itching to get those shoes laced up and for my little legs to hit the pavement, but I am not itching to get up at 3 in the morning and join my regular group. I thought of running a 15K on Sunday that I ran last year, but while it's hard to resist trying for a PR on the course, I think I need to step away from racing/training for at least one weekend. However, I have been eyeballing the upcoming race calendar, so in the next few days, look to the sidebar to see what I plan for future races.
*As a side note, all of your innovative t-shirt suggestions on the post below has me thinking that we need to team up and start a business. Clearly, we are all missing the mark in our current professions. Who's with me?
