A few things

I can't seem to get into a groove this semester. Half way through the third week now and I just can't get it together. I think part of the problem is I teach a late afternoon class on Tues/Thur and I have always taught in the morning. So I sit around (trying to do work) in the mornings now and have to be functioning at 4:00pm to teach a class...we'll see if my Geometry students learn anything this semester.

I went to Yoga Monday night (which was Labor day) and only one other person was there. Kind of funny we has like our own private class. Surprisingly, the instructor told me that I am looking SOOOOOO much better, so I guess it is helping! I do feel like it calms me down which is nice and that is it helping with some flexibility issues. I don't know if I will ever be able to touch my toes, but we'll keep at it.

EZ claimed he could build the deck in a weekend. It is not built. :) We don't even have boards up. The framing is all done and he built the stairs (which took him forever) and most of the posts for the railing are in and now he is working on the trim since he wants to have that up before he lays the deck boards down. I think it will be mostly done after this weekend. It looks rather big which is strange looking out on the framing but I am sure it won't be huge once we put furniture on it. Either way, I know it is going to look really nice when he is done and I am extremely grateful for a wonderful husband who can do this kind of stuff!

I have started training...for what, I am not sure and ONLY running. I am running 5 days a week now and about 25 miles a week which is a lot for me. EZ has me doing workouts 3 days a week-a mile repeat set, a hill workout and a last 1/2 mile fast run. I don't know if it is working but I will run a 5K in a few weeks and test out my fitness. I am debating on running a half marathon again this fall/winter (Nov-Dec). We'll see.
