Good morning BT!  

Off day for me today!  Still got up at my usual time though to continue grading some final projects.  

That's all I have today folks!  Have a great training day!

Last day of school for kids and celebrated it with the "daily double".

6 AM: 3000m of swimming. Two kids, one of them a fifth grader, actually showed up for the club practice on the last day of school. Talk about dedication!
5:45 PM--One hour trainer ride; mostly easy with some high-cadence pickups.

School ended at noon today and as per usual custom I had the kids lined up the door after "The Final Countdown" and they were getting their choice of a hug or high-five as they left. Lots of tearful girls and one tearful boy---they get a bit more emotional about the end of elementary school than most other years. Then all of a sudden at the end of my "hugging line" appears a tenth grader--one of my former students! The room has two doors--she'd dropped by to visit, seen the year-end ritual in progress, and quietly joined the line! So cool to be able to see my "old students" grow up. (I also had a former student return a classroom library book five years later, while I was in the middle of class a few weeks ago. That gave everyone a good laugh!)

1/2 day for teachers tomorrow (maybe 2/3-depends on my efficiency) then school will be out!

7 miles in the pouring rain. But I feel like I'm getting back on track after 3 weeks of just slogging through every run. It was slow, but a really enjoyable run.

Hope you all have a great training day.

Good teachers have such a positive impact in a child's life. Glad you're getting hugs and high fives.

The Lion King is probably my favorite show, and I've seen a lot of them. Hope you and your family enjoy.

11:50 - 2,750 yards, with an endurance speed focus. I'm not a good swimmer, and this pushed me. A good thing, but not an enjoyable process.

Have a great day!

This is our first time seeing the Lion King show so we're looking forward to it tonight. Les Mis is our family favorite of all the shows we seen.

Pretty slow 5.5 mile run this morning. Feeling pretty tired coming back this week, but have to push through until the weekend.

My wife is a teacher and tomorrow is her and my boys last day, they couldn't be more excited. Except she then gets on a bus early Sunday morning and chaperones a group of 8th graders to the east coast for a trip.

Lion King is awesome, saw it with my wife in San Francisco years ago and I am not usually a play guy.

As for being productive I got in a 31 mi ride this afternoon and a almost 6 mi run tonight
