Back to work!

Today is my first day back at work after my restful summer vacation.  I'm excited to be at a new school, and have a positive outlook on this year!

Yesterday Sheila and I went on a 30 mile bike ride.  Well slightly less than 30, but in less than two hours!  We killed it!  Hills and all.  Here's hoping we can get even faster on the bike over the next two months, and we also won't have the heat to deal with come October....I hope!

I hung out with the kids the rest of the day till the evening, when my friend Mare, had booked us massages.  The first 30 minutes were free (for teachers), and Mare purchased an additional 30 minutes as an early birthday present.  The massage was amazing!  I have had sports massages before, but they weren't very restful because the person talked the.entire.time.  I like to sleep!  It was a deep tissue massage, and the spot on my back that no one has ever been able to hit, she found.  The stars had a aligned!    She could point out where I was tight and really knew her stuff--glutes, IT band, etc.

I didn't want to get off her table, but alas, we had things to do.  In our relaxed state, we ran a few errands, and I made it out of each store without buying anything.  Easy to do when you are saving your money for your European vacation next summer!

Got the kids tucked into bed when I got home, and even went to bed early, so I'd be ready for work today.  I'm supposed to be there in 45 minutes, so I guess I better get rolling out the door before I get another cup of coffee and wind up late!

Crossfit and running tonight!
