Today was a pretty good day for a Monday. I woke up with every intention to go for a swim before work. However, the weather did not cooperate. Right when I was about to leave for the pool, it started raining. I probably could have gone swimming anyway, but the thought of swimming in the rain was not appealing to me.
School went well. My students worked really hard. I was excited about my writing lesson. It felt like everything in the universe aligned. My students had fun, and I had fun, too. I took my students out for P.E. today for the first time. It was very hot and humid here today, so the grass was fairly dry from the early morning rain. I tried to incorporate some CrossFit strategies and had a Workout of the Day (W.O.D.). Students had to do 2 rounds of the W.O.D. The W.O.D. was to run one lap around the field. Twenty revolutions with the hula hoop. Ten “inchworms” to a plank and back up. I timed the students and then they recorded their time in a little journal. I am going to have to come up with some different workouts.
When I got home from work, my daughter offered to cook dinner. Now, that is a treat! Yes, today was a pretty good day for a Monday.
