I started the week off pretty good although I was a bit choked up with a cold but I was feeling pretty motivated.
Monday – 8 miles. I wasn’t far off my usual pace so I felt good that I hadn’t lost too much with my knee recovery and hoped I’d sweat out this cold. No knee pain during or after. Bonus.
Tuesday – 3 miles. Another pretty good run and again no pain. Goodbye runners knee!! *touches wood*
Wednesday – 3 miles. I struggled a little breathing as my cold seems to be going to my chest and my nose was running like a stream…gross, sorry!
Thursday – 3.5 miles. I ran with Kevin and I struggled from 0.5miles onward, I contemplated quitting and just heading back home but kept going with a run/walk method, it was tough I struggled breathing and kept getting a side stitch. Not a good run at all.
Friday – rest
Saturday – rest
SUNDAY – 4 miles. Kevin ran with me as I have a bit of a chesty cough And he was concerned I might have an asthma attack( that’s true love right there, ha) I managed to run most of the way…stopped to tie my shoe lace and had a cheeky 15 second walk (Kev didn’t notice!) I was a bit slower than usual but still a million times better than Thursday!
Tonight I’m having a HOT bath, a hot honey and lemon drink and an early bed in attempt to shift this cold. If not I guess I just gotta man up and get on with it. I have some serious training to catch up with!!
Starting to panic and feeling sorry for myself. Here’s hoping for a better week of running!
Thanks for reading 😊 have a great week 💗
