Happy MLK day! We’re all off and hanging out for the day… one child has a birthday party to go to this afternoon, so at least there is something to break up the day since it’s too cold for much else!
Thanks for your support on my whining and complaining about winter! Feeling under the weather last week certainly didn’t help. Slowly my energy is coming back.
My cold/cough turned into pink eye and I was a bit of a mess last week but I felt okay running. I just had no extra gear. I hung out in the 8:30- 10:00 range.
I heard a quote recently around the lines of “it’s better for training plan to be controlled by the runner than the runner to be controlled by the training plan” – in other words, listen to your body and be flexible. That was me this week.
I scrapped all ‘workouts’ with any speed or intensity last week but still managed to get my planned miles in, so I’ll take it!
Monday : 7 easy (9- 9:30 range, on the treadmill) + push ups
Tuesday: 45 minute pool run
Wednesday: 10 easy, outside! (8:55 ave) + new gymnastics class for the little one
Thursday: 8.5 with friends, made the miles fly by (9:30 ave) with awesome 40 something temps… plus a leg strength workout later in the day
Friday: 4 easy, no watch to enjoy the 55 degree weather!!
Saturday: 14 miles, easy (9:03 ave) It was chilly! But nice to get these done outside and with some company as I joined a group run.
What I’m making this week…
- chicken noodle soup
- roasted chicken thighs with butternut squash puree
- chickpea squash soup
- most likely eggs or pizza one night
Have you ever had pink eye?
Did you have a mix of freezing and unseasonably warm days this week like us?
