There is a lot going on at school right now. In addition to my normal roles and responsibilities, I am assisting in coordinating state testing, proctoring testing, and planning big events in May (5th grade transition and career week). On top of that I am planning my wedding, which is June 26th!
I was also training for a half-marathon. I decided that to postpone my half-marathon training to sometime in the summer or later in the year. My longest run was 7 miles and the half marathon is less than a month away. Needless to say, training was the first to go. I am still running, because it helps my sanity. I was feeling pressured by the training schedule and my work schedule. Running was not as enjoyable for me as it had once been. The last thing I need right now is to feel unnecessary pressure.
I have come to the conclusion, as much as I hate to admit it, I can't do it all. I need to learn to be okay with that! ;)
