Sorry (feels like I'm apologizing a lot lately on here :P) for once again sucking with the posts. Truth be told I haven't been running since my PT told me I should 'use my best judgement'. After a month of PT nothing's changed, so I'm going to try to go back to the doc and maybe get an MRI. Leg is constantly sorish. Nothing too bad, but enough to be annoying and frustrating, since it's been pretty constant for months now. I'm pretty much writing off any racing plans I've had and just going to be accepting of whatever happens. I might take another week of rest and see if three weeks of no running with my exercises every day does something, but so far no success. I am getting a stronger core at least, though :)
My professional life is also crazy right now as well. Because of some big differences, I decided to leave my last student teaching placement (4th grade) and am now tackling an entirely different beast, middle school! Yep, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders are now my students, which is somewhat frightening and intimidating and incredibly challenging. I'm starting all over with new kids and a new school and have been totally overwhelmed the last week. Hopefully this one will go well and I can call it home!
So, with all the craziness, here's some prettiness from a visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
