A head cold and a wicked headache came to visit this week, but my runs (few that they've been) have felt great.
Wednesday: 4-ish very hilly miles. 42:26. The weather has been pretty warm for fall so I've been wearing capris and short sleeve running shirts most mornings. The reason I mention it is on this run I had my first shirt-popping-up-over-belly experience. I'm still not "PREGNANT-pregnant" but the navel-slip made me smile. (Not as classy as Nancy Grace's slip on her DWTS but I can't compete with that amount of, ahem, self-assurance).
Thursday: I wrote this exact quote in my running calendar: "Slug. Earache. Soar throat. Kill me." So, ummm, I didn't run on Thursday.
Friday: "Blech. Boogers. Throat."
Saturday: This was an interesting day because we were hosting my in-laws for a VERY early Thanksgiving. I planned to get out fairly early before they arrived in the morning. I didn't get out in time - they called and I started cleaning furiously. Then, Scott and the rest went out for the day and I got to take a nice, relaxing 6-miler in the mist... Which turned into a hilarious SOPPING WET final 2 miles in a monsoon. I was so happy to be out after 2 days of feeling so crappy. My speed was actually up from the last few weeks on the same route. Not that I was keeping careful track, but since I do walk breaks every 15 minutes or so, I definitely noticed I was further along when I rested than in the past.
Sunday: Rest day. (I planned to run, actually, but it was again just POURING out and I didn't think I could do 2 days in a row of the crazy weather. Saturday was funny and fun. A second day would have been asking for trouble).
Monday: 3 very hilly miles.
Tuesday: Monday night I got a world class head ache. (Maybe a migraine? I don't know...) I curled up and whimpered in my bed by 8:00. I probably could have done the 5AM run this morning but I was too scared (read: lazy?) to try it. I'm going to shoot for 30 minutes of yoga during nap time.
