Another quiet week, and the last of my YTT calls. It’s amazing how much information we were exposed to — many students who are already teachers commented on how it was far more in depth than what they went through in an in person training. But just how much of it have I actually absorbed?

I will admit it: I was just a little achy after the trail 10k the day before. More so than for most recent halfs! Probably because it wasn’t easy, probably because while I’ve done some trail running this summer, not that much.
A slow 3 miles on a very lovely day at the park.
Followed by a surprise chiro appointment (was able to get squeezed in last minute — remember they no longer take my insurance after this month). She said it was a good thing, as my hips were out of alignment. Despite all the yoga & body awareness, I never can feel that.
Apparently I typed over this, I haven’t been entering my runs this week, and I don’t have a lot of memory of what went on here. It was easy and just a little faster than Monday’s run, that’s about all I remember.
The last of the trail run series from our local running club. I was grateful they started half an hour earlier — I actually got to sleep at a decent time. Since it was my third run for the week, I hung back with a friend who is working her way back from an injury.
Say what you will about the dwindling sunlight, our movement towards Fall brings in some lovely weather — and it was awesome for this morning’s run. Nice and steady, and let myself go a little harder that last mile. Sort of negative splits (even before the last mile). Nice.
Favorites of the week
This week has been pretty much consumed by studying for my test for my YTT. It’s released today, but I am not yet ready to take it (I have over a week). Plus figuring out how to actually video my practicum (which I’ll be doing next week) and test uploading it.
If you ever need to study for something, I highly recommend Quizlet, you can download the app (or use it on your lap/desktop here). I used the free version.
I am actually feeling kind of run down — although a bit better this afternoon, but the resting heart rate remains good, so hopefully it’s just from lack of sleep and lots of studying.
Lastly, in case you missed it, the Skirt Sports Labor Day sale is going on here. Obviously I’m partial to the Cool it Tops, which I am wearing above, and yes, they’re on sale.
