finally a run this week

I've been trying to get back on track... or on the treadmill, but only 3 or 4 times a week.
The plan was to run Tuesday and Thursday, but I just wasn't feeling it on Tuesday! I woke up with a sore throat and felt run down, so I thought an easy elliptical might be a better option. Not having a real training plan right now is allowing me to be more flexible in my workouts, I'd like to get back on track full time, but I'm taking it easy with my knee. The workouts have been decent this week nonetheless...
Monday: 75 minutes on the elliptical, upper body lift
Tuesday:75 minutes on the elliptical- easy
Wednesday: up before school for an early hour on the trainer (bike)
Thursday: run! 5.1 miles... 37 minutes, elliptical 40 minutes.

I don't consider myself slacking off by any means, in fact sometimes staying focused on the trainer or elliptical is harder than focusing on the treadmill.

I'm happy that I got through the week; Wednesdays are so long when I go non stop from 5 am until I return around pm. Squeezing grad school into the mix really stretches my time, but I know it will be worth it next fall when I have my CAGS and I'm a certified reading specialist! I really hope I am able to advance in my career and provide reading interventions to those kiddos who really need intensive instruction to learn/ improve reading skills!

Well I am calling it a lazy night, after my productive afternoon. I managed to get all my plans set for next week (thank you 2-day work week coming up!! woot woot!) It's time for some quality hgtv (I am so addicted to this... and may check in on Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving special on the side....something about quality, classic cartoons for the holidays that I watched as a child, it really brings me back to my childhood and makes me happy! :)
Maybe this time Charlie Brown won't miss the football?
