Half Training Week 2 and…this one time at band camp…

Monday – Bike 5 miles 

Tuesday – 3 miles easy/Strength circuit

Wednesday – Restorative Yoga

Thursday – Speed work 1600, 800 X 2, 400 X 2 (3.5 miles total with warm up and cool down)

Friday – Rest

Saturday – 6 miles

Sunday – 3.5 miles recovery run

This past week has been a tough one!  I just found out my current position has been turned into a full time position for next year.  This is excellent news but I have been on campus almost every day with meetings and completing a ton of paperwork all while teaching a band camp…and yes, I have heard “this one time at band camp” more times than I care to mention!

Band camp is tough.  The schedule is something like this:

7:30 Breakfast

8:30-10:30 Marching on the field

11:00-12:15 Sectionals

12:30 Lunch

1:30-3:00 Sectionals

3:30-5:00 Full band

5:30 Dinner

7:00-10:00 Marching on the field

I have it easier than the students because I only do sectionals and full band, but still that is a lot of time on my feet (and they have definitely been talking to me).  This morning’s run was one of the slowest I have had in a while and felt really hard.  I seem to have selective memory when it comes to Clarksville.  I always seem to conveniently forget how hilly it actually is.  I have another run scheduled on Thursday which is my last day here and hopefully it will go a little better.  On the bright side, it was 66 degrees out this morning when I ran (ridiculously cool for July in Tennessee) and it felt AWESOME!!!!

Oh, and did I mention….I get to stay in a dorm room.
