Marathon Training: Week 12


This week was a very sad training week in that I did almost no training. I did run 12 miles on Monday, but it was actually the long run from the previous week that I was supposed to do on Sunday so it doesn't really count for this week.

Tuesday was an hour of boot camp, which was great, and then Wednesday - Saturday I did nothing but lie on the couch and take my temperature.

Today, at long last, I was finally feeling up to activity, so I did 3.5 miles on the treadmill at a terribly slow pace that was a mixture of walking and running. I'm super bummed I had to skip my 20 miles this morning. I thought it wouldn't be the best idea to try to run 3 hours in the wind and cold after being sick for most of the week. But, I guess at least it's good that I'm on the mend.

I'm still not positive I had the flu since I never actually went to the doctor, but I'm going to blame Jordan for my sickness anyway. Let's hope this week I can get back on track. It's just over ONE MONTH until the marathon!

Sorry to hear you weren't feeling so hot! At least it's a new week and you can sweat out those toxins!

I hope you're feeling better this week, being sick is the worst!
