- Total Weekly Mileage – 3 miles
- Long run with GFA – n/a
- Sick Week
- M,T,W – – pity party because of lower body cramps
- Thursday – 3 miles of good strong tempo run. 2.5miles at 12:00 without stopping in between. Kenpo X (kickboxing) before the tempo run.
- F – Onset of sickness
- Saturday – Missed group run for a myriad of reasons (Body ache and sickness, too much going on that Saturday with run, lessons for DD(5), ballet recital, birthday parties and swim lessons – I just needed a breather, my car was completely out of gas and I was scared to fill up at 6:30am, etc etc etc)
- Sunday – Trail run scheduled at the river with Big Peach, but missed out because the congestion took root in my chest
Odds and Ends
- No regrets in missing the group run on Saturday. But I do regret not atleast walking in the beginning of the week. Moving my body would’ve helped with the cramps.
- That tempo run has given me so much confidence that I can ultimately be at the speed of an average runner. When I first ran, I couldn’t do half a mile at 4.0, and this was 2.5miles at 5.0.
- I wonder why I keep getting sick so much. Not so much fever, but just congestion and cold from the germs that the kids bring home.
Training plan for next week
- 20 weeks to Chicago. It has to get serious.
- M – Walk (2 miles) + Core/Upper body Strength (30min)
- T – Speed Intervals (4 miles) – this is subjective to how good I feel. If I’m not feeling better, it will be walking that distance.
- W – Strength + Swim (I’ll hopefully be over the congestion to swim)
- Th – Easy Run
- F – Swim with kids/Rest
- S – Group run with GFA
