Happy Tuesday! I’m in an exceptionally good mood this afternoon because I’m feeling pretty productive. I feel like I’m just checking things off my to do lists like a champ. Except for cleaning the house. I’ll get to that sometime this year.
Yesterday I ran farther than I have in a while, despite the heat and humidity trying to tempt me into hiding inside of my house all day.
I ran 6 mile repeats before crawling another .2 miles to make sure I completed my F.A.S.T. Virtual 10k. The race is being held my none other than the Dani from Weight Off My Shoulders. If you don’t know her, you should. The virtual race supports Tedy’s Team, whose mission is to raise funds for the battle against stroke as well as raise awareness of the disease and its warning signs. To learn more head over to the Tedy’s Team website. My grandma suffered a stroke the Christmas before last, and I know every second counts. Awareness matters!
As far as the actual run went, well, it was tough. I’m working on my hydration efforts and this was definitely a good test. I did better than I usually would have, but I was sweating up a storm so I still lost more than I took in. No worries. I rehydrated like a boss.
This morning, after I dropped M off at daycare, I made the 40 minute drive to the closest “testing facility”. Yep, I finally took my NASM CPT exam. They don’t show you your actual score, but I got the official “pass” paperwork a few minutes after I finished. Time to celebrate?
Well, if celebrating means going to your place of employment, then YES. I totally celebrated. I had to drop some things off at school today. While I was there I took a mental note of everything I need to buy for my classroom. Y’all, I’m going to be broke before school even starts. I need new curtains, bulletin board “stuff”, and a calendar. I’m sure I’ve forgotten about thirty other things, too.
Right now I’m going to do a little “back to school” online shopping because I heard through the grapevine that all of our teacher stores have been wiped clean. That’s what I get for procrastinating. Hope y’all are having a great day!
