OPENER

I was one of the openers at daycare this morning. There are three teachers who are there at 6:30 for the kids who arrive early. You all know by now how much I hate to get up early, but I do like getting off work at 3:30. It at least gives me the potential to get something done after work. I guess that proves if I really want to, I can get up at 4:30 am. Actually, as I wrote that, I’ve always known I could get up early if I had to, but it’s another story if I have a choice in the matter.

I was in the 3 and 4 year old class room today. With 13 kids that age in one class, I don’t think it could ever be quiet or easy, but it was a decent day. Only one tripped and scrapped his elbow enough to need a band aid. We also had a visit from state licensing. As far as I know, that went well.

It was hot today, near 90°F (32.2°C) when I got home. I was not going to try to run in that, so changed clothes and did my scheduled recovery run on the treadmill. It felt really good today. My HR was higher than it should have been, but, unless I am walking, I really don’t expect it to stay in Zone 1.

Stats: Walked 1.0 mile in 15:50 minutes for a 3.8 mph pace. Ran 2.10 miles in 30:00 minutes for a 14:17 min/mile (4.2 mph) pace. My average HR was 136 bpm with a max of 165 bpm. I was in Zone 2 for 94% of the run.

As a follow up to yesterday’s post, I have done a little bit of research and can not find any “laws” that regulate who can buy energy products in the USA. It does look like some “chain” stores have taken it upon themselves to restrict the sales of these items. I bought mine at the local Walmart, so am really surprised that it would be on their restricted list if there is no law requiring them to do so.

  1. So you’re not one of those, “There’s a 4:30 in the morning too?” people? 😀

    The heat possibly contributed to the higher-than-it-should-have-been HR? Nice job.

    1. Hahaha Something like that. If there is a 4:30 am, it should definitely be spent in bed. 😆

      I would agree with you, but the treadmill is in my basement, so it was only about 72F down there. LOL

  2. I used to be in this running group that ran from 5-6 every morning. Gosh, I hated getting up at 4:15 to join them. I did like having my run done for the day but I was so tired and draggy by the afternoon. I also didn’t like running in the dark and on streets with traffic so ultimately I quit the group. But that wake up! Ugh. I feel your pain!
