Resurrection

Back as a way to get me on track to do a 10k in 8 weeks… it can be done! Apologies for being boring, but I’ll be far more accountable if I track food/exercise on the internets for actual real people to look at. Not that they’d want to… but that they COULD.

Today, official start to 10k training. We scoured the internet at work and came up with a simple and seemingly easy to follow training program. It gave a Monday as a rest day (although I’ll likely be changing that to Saturday… because honestly.) and had a Tuesday easy 2 mile start.

While the day was nothing but easy (field trip! chaos! night lesson! sleep deprivation! overheated gym!) I still made the first goal. Pretty poor effort, with 10:40 first mile and slightly under 10:00 mile 2 (not precise, treadmill is in km) but since it’s “Day 1” it can be forgiven.

Food was as follows:

Breakfast: 1 banana, since I ran out of yogurt. hmm.

Lunch (teacher’s lunch courtesy of Leo’s mom!): golf ball sized portions of potato salad, and curry chicken salad (AMAZING!), 3 tiny cookies, tupperware full of fruit pieces, various snacks fed by kindy children.Ahem. Will make better effort not to eat what the children feed me.

Dinner: leftover sandwich from lunch (Leo’s mom rocked the lunch packing situation)

Waters: 1 liter for sure…. possibly closer to 2.

Not a totally poor effort food wise, but less snacks and it’ll be golden.

Here’s to the 10k!!!





Teaching kindergarten is funny.

I came in from lunch today to find my co-teacher scotch taped to a chair with her hands and feet taped together. It seems as though she allowed the joke to happen for a minute, then found herself incapacitated.

…I had to cut the tape off of her to free her. Moral of the story? We have the best students ever.

Also, managed to dye my hands pink today while trying to dye clay into various colors. Alicia Teacher : 0, Kindergarten : 1.

In other news, the ink is dry on my contract renewal. Korea and I are lined up for one last dance.
