Last week felt like a blur. I spent most of it feeling as though I was in a fog or exhausted state of some sort. In between it all, I somehow managed to workout 5 days as usual. I suppose I’m stubborn, because I don’t plan on letting some autoimmune disease dictate how I live my life. I’ve learned how strong I am capable of being through God and my running. It may not always be easy, but I won’t give up.
Sunday, February 4th – After tossing and turning a good portion of the night, I ended up at the gym. Sundays are usually my one day that I let myself sleep in without an alarm, but my body had other plans. Got in just over 10 miles on the bike for a great workout to start off the week.
Monday, February 5th – Good cross-training workout on the bike before work. It’s a good thing that I usually tend to get my workouts done in the morning, because I would have never gotten it in after work. It was an exhausting day, the beginning of my flare up.
Tuesday, February 6th – Tuesday morning run with my group. It was a bit cool at the start, but once I got moving, it felt great. I may have been tired, but I never regret running with my group.
Wednesday, February 7th – REST DAY.
Thursday, February 8th – This day getting out the door for any workout was hard. My back was hurting, and I was super tired. So, I slept in a bit and then hit the gym instead of my 5am run.
Friday, February 9th – REST DAY.
Saturday, February 10th – Saturday long run! I wasn’t sure if I would get in 10 or 12 miles for half marathon training on this day. But, I was able to get 12 done, thanks to my running friend, Melissa who did the last couple of miles with me. I hadn’t run more than 8 miles since the WDW Half Marathon on January 6th, so I felt these miles.
How were your workouts last week? Did you run a race, or are you training for one?
