The week started off ok.
Ran 3 miles monday to and from getting an oil change for my car while I cleaned my old apartment.
Tuesday I ran on the TM and did some hill/speed play (6 miles). I was feeling heavy at first but once I start playing with the speed I generally feel better and I did end up having a good workkout.
Wednesday I took off- had some running around to do for work.
Thursday another 6 on the TM.
Friday, finally some circuit madness and logged 7 miles. Did a couple strength circuits and for the last running bit included 9 times 8 minute pace for 1 minute with 45 sec rest. Felt real good and was looking forward to a recovery Spin class Saturday and long run Sunday.
Welp that was the end of the good stuff. Saturday's spin class was a bust. I rode but the instructor wasn't good- at least this time- and I couldn't get into it. I was feeling pretty sore. The rest of the day was spent on a bus with Men's lacross and standing out in the frigid wind watching 2 games. Brrr. My body was sore from Friday's workout, but standing out in the cold like that definitely made it worse.
Sunday I got up still sore and although got out the door, my run was lethargic and energy level was extremely low. I logged 4 miles- lots of walking. sick?
Pretty disappointing week. A long run would have given me a little confidence for this Sunday's DH Jones race. I've already had nightmares about stopping after 1/2 mile into the race and ending up at some random house! Today I did wake up with more of a head cold than I like to admit to. I feel like garbage and won't log any miles today and probably not tomorrow. ugh Sunday is going to be a battle. It's a process, and I love it when I am healthy!
