Even though it’s cold outside (even colder than our prefab) we still go out for a run twice a day almost every day. On Monday mornings we have P.E. but every other morning we go at approximately 10:10 and every afternoon at 2:15. If it’s really cold or raining we wear our coats. If it’s lashing rain we stay inside and do a ‘bizzy’ break. That’s only happened twice so far.
We have the choice to run a full lap or a half lap and we can go at whatever pace we like. Mr. Gorman only runs a half lap but most of the class run a full lap. Anyone who has been in every day and ran a full lap will have run approximately 50 km by Christmas.
The amazing thing is that it takes less than 5 minutes from the time we leave our desks until we’re back at work again. We know because we’ve timed it.
Here are some comments from our class.
