I worry just a smidge about being too preemptively excited, but I think this will be a really good school year for me. This is my third year teaching and I feel much more together than I have in the previous years. (Which, of course, makes a lot of sense. Practice makes perfect and all.) It has been a really busy week, but very productive and promising.

It has not been as productive in the field of athletics, however, specifically running. I'm feeling remarkably almost guilt-free about this because it has been the first week of school. Guilt, and training, do kick back in this weekend though. I'm seriously considering (partially guided by your encouragement) to starting over my 365 now, instead of waiting until after the marathon. It definitely couldn't hurt, because anything is better than what I've done this week.

Maybe on September 1st. There's just something a little snappier about starting on the first day of the month instead of any old day.

Or maybe this is still a bad idea, considering I have lessons to plan and haven't even touched my grad school assignments for this week. And this scenario will continue for the next 10 months.


  1. Remember just in ten minutes, you can run a mile. Like Nike says, just do it.

  2. I'm glad you had a great first week back. The back to school is always so busy and difficult to always find time to exercise. I got in a few workouts this week and am happy with that.

  3. Good luck with this school year and your runs! =)

  4. Go for it! I think my 3rd year I felt the most confident, it was a great year! Good luck. I think it would be great to start over! :)

  5. LOL! It's ok girl. Get back on it when you can. Running doesn't pay the bills, but it does help keep you sane. Good luck.
