I'm No Hero That's Understood

Monday, March 26, 2012

Busy just doesn't seem to fully describe my life. I'll take insane, thanks. Currently, I'm almost done with the grading for tomorrow, and then tomorrow I get to start on the grading for Wednesday, and then Thursday. Oh, I also need to write two lectures and two worksheets this week. Yikes!

I've probably been over-snacking since my stress is a bit high. However, I'm sticking with good, paleo stuff, so that's at least a bonus. Exercise is good. I bought myself a new toy today: a jump rope! I was doing the little bits of jump rope on UFC Trainer, and realized that it's a great calf workout, which I need. My calves are easily one of the weakest links in my running. Now, I can jump rope 5-10 minutes a day and make them stronger. It's also fun, although much harder than I remember.

Okay, I should get back to the grading, and other such things.

Onward and upward!

    I have thought about getting a jump rope this week because they are so much fun but I don't know if it would be too much impact on my artificial knee joint. I might try it though to see. I think hulu hooping would be fun also. Good luck with all of your grading. Good job sticking to the paleo snacks! emoticon

    Insane - good definition. I'm finally out of insane with the first semester behind me.
Enjoy the new jump rope!

    Good job hanging in there. If only every week could be spring break, huh?

If you like jumping rope, have you thought about trying hula hooping? That looks like fun but even as a kid I couldn't do it!
