This week’s theme for our running club was running to clear the mind and release some stress!
My students knew I was stressed for my upcoming 50K. Students even said, “You’re stressed! Just relax!” Haha. I said, “I’m trying!”
I shared with my students that running can release stress. Many times, runners have to go for a run to pound out the stress and think about things.
I love that this student was happy with 10 laps even though his goal was 11 laps. We didn’t have as much to run today with the way the day went.
I love this student used the word fatigue in her journal since we had just learned that word earlier that day. I explained that I am sure I will be very fatigued after my 50K!
I was glad to get in a short run with my students and I did feel better afterward. Running always makes me feel better, most especially during stressful times. I was stressed last week, as the 50k neared. I hope my students learn to run when they need to release some stress!
Your path, your pace, Tam
