8,492 steps today and counting. Steps mostly taken at school because I have basically been on my couch since I got home.
My classroom is remotely located on the 2nd floor, far, far away from the lunchroom, specials, and what feels like civilization. A little dramatic, but our transitions through the school feel like a daily journey.
Walk down the hallway, make a left around the corner, and down, down, down the stairs. Make a left around the corner, walk down the hallway, and turn right around the corner. Continue down another hallway. Make a slight left and continue down the hallway until you hit a dead end. First stop: Staff lounge. Turn the corner to the right, turn the corner to the left, and zig-zag down the hall, into the lunchroom. Repeat for P.E and basketball.
Zig-zag down the hall, turn the corner to the right, turn the corner to the left, and continue down the hallway until you see the stairs. Make a slight left and continue down another hallway until you reach the other stairs. Make a left, continue down the next hallway, and then turn right up, up, up the stairs. Make a right, down the hallway, and you have arrived back to our classroom.
Each day, thousands of steps are taken. A frequent journey through the maze of our hallways. Up and down the stairs, left and right through the hallways to reach our daily destinations.
Many, many, many times a day.
