Hall of Fame Marathon Training : 3
I'm not going to sugar coat it- this was a bad week for me. It started off really well, then I got hit with a crazy virus that has been going all around the office and kept me in bed for a few days. On the bright side, I didn't miss any work (since it started on Friday), but I missed two runs this week. I'd rather have a week like this early on instead of during peak week, so hopefully the worst is behind me.
Here's a look at how my training went this week:
3 miles / 9:58 paceI was feeling kind of stiff and sore from my long run on Sunday, so I took this run nice and easy.
5 miles / 9:04 pace
Friday6 miles / 9:18 pace
I headed to the park for an easy run. I did 1 mile with Selma and then 5 alone. I was starting to feel a little sick so I made sure to keep it easy and rested the rest of the night.
Saturday and SundaySick Days :(
Friday night I ended up getting a fever, and all day Saturday and Sunday I was stuck in bed. I was feeling a little better on Sunday but decided it was a better idea just to stay in and rest instead of making things worse. I was so mad to not get in my runs when the weather was so nice, but what can you do! I did manage to get a little fresh air when I took Selma for a quick walk, but even that tired me out!
I hate when a cold or other virus hits when I just want to run! Hopefully you feel better and you won't have to worry about another illness before your race. :)ReplyDelete
