Michelle D. sorry i have been kin...

Track and share your training!

Sorry I have been kind of MIA lately. I love posting on everyone's runs, but I'm lucky to even have time to plug in my garmin (if I get a run in). Work has been rough - after teaching in a school for 10 years and being moved to another building, I feel like the new kid trying to prove herself. Granted this is my 15th year teaching, but still...Struggling to find the right time to run...It is so darn dark at 5:30am and I've been getting to bed way too late. Trying to find a new groove with my new hours, teaching in a different school, homework, dinner and running...how does everyone do it? Thanks for listening to my mini-vent...time for a shower and some beers :)

    I hear every word you just said Michelle. I feel so horrible and guilty about it too. But I too started a new job, working 40 hours a week, away from my family, plus staff meetings and council meetings on top of that! I'm lucky if I get two runs in per week. UGH. Overwhelming.

    What grade/subject are you teaching? I feel for you! I find it hard enough to fit in runs with all my work and i've been teaching same school same grade for 5 years! I can't even imagine starting over again at this point! Good luck! Beer definitely helps ;)

    I totally get it Michelle. I'm teaching too and having a very difficult time trying to balance everything. I've been doing a few of the 5:30 am runs and by the evening I'm too tired too...hang in there. Hope you find your groove soon!

    Good luck...If it were middle school social studies, I could help! Hopefully you were able to catch up a bit with the 3 day weekend!
