It's been a long day. Actually, it's been one of the most rewarding days in a long time. I'm not exactly sure why though. Maybe it's because I didn't stop moving from 9am until 11pm. Maybe it's because I planned/taught my first day of Field Hockey Club at Honey Brook. Maybe it's because on top of it all, I worked for 5 hours.
Nah, that's definitely not it.
The most rewarding this about today was the result. I always learn a lot when I'm with Mrs. Heller, always. I learn something new every day and class. I get to try and fail, and try again. We were outside all afternoon enjoying the weather. After teaching all afternoon, I got to teach my favorite thing...field hockey. I had my first day of club and it went well. It was a little chaotic and it went really fast, but it was a lot of fun.
I told you the best part of my day was the result, right? Wanna know what that result is? A good burn. My first good burn of the summer. What makes this burn feel so good? The fact that I got this burn while teaching. The fact that I got this burn doing what I love. It's gonna look great when I show up to aquatics with a farmer tan and collared-shirt-tan-lines, but I'll be proud. I'll hold my red face high.
Today I was in the sun from noon to 4:30 and it was amazing. The kids were great and we only had one bee sting.
I'm completely/absolutely/incredibly exhausted and my legs hurt like nothing else. And I've never felt so good. It's a great feeling when fatigue and a good burn is the result of a long, hard day. Can't wait to do it again next week.
