i just finished teaching my freshmen and i have to teach a yoga class in a half hour. since that’s not long enough to begin any substantial work – blogging about my majestic daily life, it is!
i started training for the derby half today. and my training began with…a 2-mile “easy run.” i have the laziest legs in the world, and never run under 4 miles because it takes me legs THAT long to get with the program. so this was weird. however, it’s much easier to get you tail out the door to run in the 30-degree morning frigidness if you know it’ll be over in under 17 minutes.
i got hit by a car while i was running.
i was in the middle of the crosswalk – with a walk signal – when john doe in the maroon toyota decided to (a) not come to a complete stop at the stop sign, and (b) try and make a right on red. only problem being the HUMAN BODY in the way. he clipped my hip and hopefully my fist made a nice indent in his hood. but i wasn’t hurt and it was too damn cold for me to stop and raise hell.
never a dull moment.
i did posterior chain this morning at the gym and deadlifted my balls off. and then when i picked up a pair of 20# dumbbells to do romanian DLs and shoulder presses, i wanted to cry because my hands hurt so badly. these calluses need to hurry up and form.
after my yoga class i have to make a lesson plan and finish some doo-dads for the 5pm class i teach. and i have a meeting in there, too. i just said doo-dads.
also – very important – in assessing the garbage can outside of my office this morning, i remarked to my office neighbor: “if i was in “Hansel and Gretel,” instead of leaving a trail of breadcrumbs i would leave a trail of clif protein bar wrappers and speedway coffee cups.” to which he laughed and told me that would make a great facebook status.
