The week started off well, with a 3.5 mile run on Monday, speed work intervals on Tuesday, and another 3.5 mile run on Wednesday. Then on Thursday, we were supposed to get our taxes done and so I decided to make Thursday my rest day for the week. Thursday night, I didn’t feel well and by Friday, my head was stuffed up, I was coughing, and just pretty much felt like crap, so I didn’t do anything on Friday, either.
Saturday was supposed to be a 6.2 mile run and it was just killing me that I hadn’t done anything in a couple of days, even though I was still feeling crappy, so I decided to just get on the treadmill and do what I could do. It was rough, but I managed to do the entire 6.2 miles. Honestly, sweating it out really felt good, like I was sweating out all of the toxins in my body and I felt pretty good for most of the day after that. By Saturday night, however, I was wore out and took some NyQuil in hopes of getting a good night’s sleep.
I slept pretty well, but woke myself up this morning with a huge coughing fit. I feel pretty good; it’s just I have this annoying cough lingering. Today is a cross-training day, so I plan on walking a couple of miles on the treadmill to warm the legs up, and then I’ll do PiYO.
I signed up for a virtual half-marathon and am planning on doing that next weekend. I’m not even sure I’m ready, but I’m going to give it a shot. I hope I’m feeling 100% by then and that the weather is nice enough to run outside.
On another note, my goal of reading a book a week has not gone well at all. January went really well, but this month I’ve only read one book. By the time I sit down at night, I’m too pooped to do anything, and the last few weekends have been really busy. I really need to step it up if I want to get to the goal number of 52 books for this year! I have the house to myself this afternoon, so I hope to take advantage of the peace and quiet and get some reading done!
