This has been a really long week. I’m ready for the weekend for sure. Teaching has been going ok. I just don’t feel like I have as much time and energy to devote to it as I would like. Teaching is one of those professions where it is easy to feel like you’re never doing enough and you literally could always be doing more. Parenting often feels similar. There has been a lot of both in my life lately. Cross country has been going well though. Our team is continuing to grow and the kids are working hard. We’ve been trying to help pace 2 of our more inexperienced girls at practice and I like getting to encourage them to keep moving forward. However, it doesn’t feel fast enough to count toward my streak. Yesterday Mr. B and I ran a quicker mile after practice. Today we did the same only with a little less “quick”.
