Phew! I’m glad it’s Friday. I’m ready for a little weekend relaxation! My schedule was weird this week and winter showed up. And I’m not feeling 100%. Here’s hoping some family fun and maybe putting my feet up for a bit will do some good.
Usually I run on Saturday, but not this week. Hubby ran on Saturday. I did a workout in the basement. I did Tracy Anderson’s Dance Cardio and Metamorphosis workouts instead.
Sunday was my run day this week. And Sunday was the day Mother Nature decided that we should get our first taste of winter.
I was so happy some of my running buddies joined me despite the weather! That’s me in the second row on the right. One of the gals had 9 miles on her training schedule, so some of us stuck with her for support (10:30 min/mile). I don’t really have a running agenda right now, so I just run whatever everyone else is running.
Monday I woke up with a headache, which progressed into a sore throat and congestion. The best I could muster was 20 minutes on the step machine. And I went bowling. And how two good games and one crappy one.
Tuesday was crazy cold!!!! Normally I would put Pumpkin in the stroller and log some miles, but it was snowing and windy and the “feels like” temperature was in the single digits. So, instead I waited until hubby got home from work and logged 3.37 miles (9:18 min/mile) in the slush and sun.
Thank goodness for the sun.
On Wednesday I slept in. I forgot to set my alarm the night before so I didn’t wake up until Cupcake crawled into bed with me when her alarm went off. So I missed my workout window. And it was a jam packed day so I took an unplanned rest day.
Yesterday I had to stay home because we had a window crew coming, so there was no stroller run in the morning again. But when hubby came home in the evening I threw dinner at the family and ran out the door to get 2.25 interval miles (8:43 min/mile) before the sun set.
I’m cranking out a bit of at home strength training this morning to finish off the week. I’m still feeling a bit congested, but I’m hoping to feel better this weekend!
And hopefully next week I can put a bit more effort in.
Let’s talk head colds. Do you rest or run?
