Work was busy. I was swamped with work all Monday and Tuesday and just planned on making up my miles later in the week...but lucky me I got sick. But Wednesday at 3am I was waking up from unbearable nausea and by 7am I knew I was not going to make it to work that morning. Food poisoning, a "bug", stress, whatever it was it knocked me out. So Wednesday and Thursday I spent trying to get better. Friday, I was feeling pretty good. So Saturday I FINALLY went on a run with a dear friend...
My legs felt so heavy. Luckily this lovely gal was very patient with me as I dragged myself around for 9 miles (and she just ran a 2:04 half marathon last weekend!!). Running with this lady makes time go by fast.
I also tried out my new shorts....loved them.

So here we are, week 5 of 9. Half way point. I am over what happend last week. There is nothing that can be done about it. It is what it is. We all get knocked down...now time to get back up FAST.
Here is this week's plan...which is always subject to change in my life...
Monday: 5 miles...CHECK! Got those babies done this morning at 5:30am with my running buddy.
Tuesday: 3-4 miles speed work
Wed: 4 miles in the AM + strength and stretch after work
Thursday: kettlebell class
Saturday: 10 miles
Sunday: Rest/walk/family time...
Any struggles last week? How did you deal with them?
