Workout Wanda: More slacking and hacking…yuck!
Well…another week of training is done although there definitely wasn’t a lot of running going on! Rather than training for a marathon my immune system thought it would be a great idea to get all sorts of sick. And since I’m still not a fully functional runner I should really be in bed. Which is exactly where I’m headed as soon as this posts…so look quick, its all I’ve got!
Monday: 1.5 mile run on the treadmill + 20 minutes of biking + 2 lifting circuits
Tuesday: travel from CO to WI
Wednesday: 4.5 mile run outside with Amber on her bike
Thursday: SICK with flu
Friday: SICK with flu
Saturday: 7K/4.3mi walk at Get Lucky race with my mom
Sunday: SICK with flu
So, Week 9 is my shortest mileage week yet…and hopefully ever…in this training. Not amazing, but I can promise you that my “sick excuse” was far more than just an excuse – it was very real. This coming week is also going to end up a little short in running but I think I can handle that…just this one time.
However, you should know that “Segment 3” is the highest mileage yet – even with all the couch time I took during the last week. That makes me feel a whole lot better about my training as a whole. Even though I missed this past week I have two weeks before that with extremely solid running – I’m still going to take on Fargo and be awesome. Or at least not die. Just keeping my goals realistic!
There you have it – a super speedy fast run down of the week. Now my heavily medicated delusional self is headed to bed and hopefully my immune system will get itself back together!
