Either way, the race is just around the corner so I have to keep pushing. Here's to hoping next week is better!
4.5 miles / 43:18 / 9:37 pace
In the afternoon, Dan and I were both doing some work on the house, and I hit my head pretty hard at one point. It hurt, but I kept on painting our bedroom and thought I was fine. Unfortunately, for a few days I had an awful headache, felt a little nauseous and dizzy (especially at work) and took a few rest days. I'm find now, but I think I might have had a minor concussion.
I was actually planning on going to a Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga class with Lynne, but since I wasn't feeling well I thought it would be best if I didn't go. I'm so mad that I missed this class because it's a bucket list item for me and I was really looking forward to it!
Another day off. Starting to feel better, but I figured it was best to take off another day rather than get back too early and end up hurting myself more.
I took it really easy and just ran around my neighborhood for some easy miles. I did a one mile loop that went around my house just in case I started to feel sick at all, but I felt fine. I think I was cooped up for too long and just getting out and getting fresh air helped a lot!
9 miles / 1:23:24 / 9:16 pace
The weather was PERFECT today- just a little chill, tiny bit of wind, cloudy for the most part. My legs felt good today as well and I'm really happy with my pace! Even hit some sub 9:00 miles, which I haven't seen in ages! Didn't even feel like I was pushing it today..yay!
