Too Cold for School

Gotta love that 5:00 AM call saying "no school due to extreme weather conditions."

In our area, school gets canceled when temps/windchill is below -25. Seems wimpy, but that's what we got. And boy did I need it!!!

Sadly, not every district canceled today. Husband's school called to tell him that school "was in session" today. He was so mad. But our phone calls were about an hour apart and I couldn't go back to sleep until I heard his call. Oh well.

However, this did motivate me to hit the gym this morning and get in my 2 miles for the day. I even managed to catch a cardio class to make up for my missed cross training last night. (I know, pretty impressive.) Then, I dragged my butt to school and got some work done. And I wasn't the only one. I saw 3 other teachers!

**Dr. Update!!**

I met with my Dr. today and she referred me to a PT. I'll be giving them a call next week, giving her office enough time to fax over the referral form. So I'll be sharing all sorts of painful massage and stretching stories with you a few weeks from now :)

Have a great weekend! Hopefully it warms up here before Sunday or that run is going to be done up at Husband's school on their indoor track :(


  1. Yay for days off! But going into school anyway!?! Not sure if that's dedication or crazy!

  2. I was always so jealous as a kid when I heard people got "snow days" - never living in a place that got cold enough to close school I thought that was cool.

    Glad you were able to make a productive day out of it. Hope the PT can get your IT band healed - that is nothing to mess with.

  3. PT can be painful but a foam roller pain. you know the "it hurts so good" pain? you'll love it

  4. My school never closes. Ever. All the ones around us do...but we are always there!
