Cloudy Days

Sadness. That is what I felt as I opened the window this morning. It was cloudy and gray. Wonderfully perfect weather for a good run. My favorite actually. Only I was stuck at home unable to run. It was disappointing.

I am trying to be good and follow doctors order. I also desperately want to be moving somehow somewhere. It has been a week since I ran and now my bike has been taken from me, not to mention my kettlebells. Thankfully, my yoga is still intact.
A coworker mentioned finding a guest pass to a gym to get some swims in. I thought that was an excellent idea. I really love swimming, despite the fact I am as slow as molasses.

I have also been needing to see a chiropractor. I have scoliosis. This might be the catalyst that actually finds me at the chiropractor.

So here's hoping to a speedy recovery. Let's hope I don't lose my mind. Though things don't look promising. I'm already itching to get moving.

Just keep moving! (Somehow, someway)

What is your favorite weather to run in?

What kind of cross training do you do?


  1. Oh, I hope your injuries clear up soon!

    My favorite weather is in the high 60s/low 70s, maybe a light breeze and a little bit of cloud cover. I would rather too hot than too cold, though.

    For cross training, I do power yoga and speed walking.

    1. Thanks me too!

      That sounds like perfect running weather to me. But I would have to say I would much rather have the cold than the heat. The heat seems to suck the life out of me.

      I love doing yoga. Obviously! :)

  2. Saw your spotlight today on Runaway Bridal Planner and came to check out your blog:) Sorry your injured, hope you do have a speedy recovery!!!

I'd love to hear what you have to say! Otherwise, I feel like I'm talking to a wall, much like I do with my students. :)

Weekend in San Diego

I was looking forward to this past weekend for a number of reasons and a number of weeks. First, it marked the beginning of my Spring Break. I cannot tell you how much of a needed break this is. To start the break off right, J.R. and I packed up our bikes (and some clothes) and headed down to San Diego for the weekend.

Saturday J.R. arranged for us to ride with a former coworker of his. We knew he is quite a bit slower than we are, but we simply wanted a nice, relaxing ride. What we did not know was that this would be the worst.ride.ever.
I want to preface things by saying I know things could have been far worse. I, also, know that if this was my worst ride, I should consider myself lucky. However, all that does not change how horribly catastrophic this ride turned out.
Problem #1 should have become very readily apparent the minute we started. J.R.’s former coworker chose the route. This man is not a very experienced rider, because of this he shys away from the road. That’s fine, however…

Surprises: The Good and the Bad

Solving Life's Questions

Today's prompt was:

If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?

Now that is a difficult question. So often we put so much of who we are into the job we do. I am no exception. Much of my sense of being, of who I am rests in my career. I believe much of this has to do with my chosen profession. Teaching is definitely not for the faint of heart. 

However, I also believe this has to do with the fact that I feel this is more of a calling. It is what I was created to do. This makes my job an essential part of who I am.

It is no wonder when I lost my job a few years ago, I was seriously tested. The lack of income was a struggle and hardship. However, my ego and my self-esteem took a major hit as the years came and left leaving me unable to find a teaching job. It was then I was first met with the question of if I'm not teaching, then who am I.

I came to this conclusion, I am still a teacher. Even without a classroom to prepare les…
