  1. five pounds up

    by , 02-26-2010 at 03:26 PM
    We had two more snow days. Jeepers. Yesterday, I walked for an hour and a half in the non-snow (nothing stuck at all in Philadelphia), and today (in a much denser but quickly melted snow) I walked to the health club. I put five pounds more on every machine that I had been doing a full set with, and in most cases still managed a full set. Seems to me this slow-and-steady approach works just as well as going to failure for me. I'd rather do it completely correctly, with a full range of motion, ...

  2. Nother late one

    by , 02-25-2010 at 10:11 AM
    Yesterday I had a faculty meeting until 5:00 and until 5:30 was calling candidates for the job I'm trying to fill, but my husband called and said the chicken was already in the oven and my daughter had come over, so I grabbed a couple of folders from my desk (a snow day was likely, which meant I wouldn't make it back to work) and zipped home.

    I said hello to my husband and daughter, ate at high speed, called another candidate, changed, zipped out of the house, and got to fencing by ...

  3. Slow hand, immediate feet

    I got to the health club and lifted before work, because I knew I wasn't getting out of work until 7:00 (long day--got there at 7:15 a.m.) and wasn't sure I would be able to make it to fencing. I did make it to fencing, though not until about 7:30 p.m.

    I ate about four cookies, two brownies, and a bag of Sun chips at my late meeting because I was so tired and frazzled. I really need to pack a dinner to these things, because the guy who sets them up invariably loads the table up with ...

  4. Ossa upon Pelion

    by , 02-16-2010 at 11:18 PM
    I lifted twice more last week--Friday and Monday--and walked to fencing last night because I didn't feel like digging the car out and losing my parking space. Friday I rushed through my machines and paid the price because I was quite wifty afterwards.

    Yesterday Mark was in Memphis and there weren't many people at practice. Donna, Jessi1, Ben, junior-boy-with-the-heavy-hand, and Charlotte were there. I was fairly heavy-footed because of the lifting, and I have a little cold, but ...

  5. sleet, snow, slush

    by , 02-10-2010 at 02:06 PM
    We had what would normally be plenty of snow last night, but I knew it was just a foretaste. My school thought so, too--they cancelled school today, and I bet they cancel it tomorrow, too. Since we have Friday and Monday off, that means I won't see the kids again until Tuesday. That sounds lovely, and I am not objecting to a day off, but it is difficult for non-teachers to understand why I have very mixed feelings about that. Every day off a kid has is two days (or more) of lost ground in school. ...
