Somehow I am sick again. I have a not-COVID, not-FLU URI. And I am not thrilled about it. Honestly, I felt like I had to dig deep to be calm and accepting about the last bout of illness, but I felt like “well, at least I’m getting it over with!”.
Except that was only 3 weeks ago and my throat is filled with gunk and HELLO INTERFERONS are you sleeping on the job or something!? Last time I checked I am not a day care-attending toddler.
Anyway. Hopefully this will pass quickly. I am working on my attitude. I promise. On the bright side, just one more day of call! And I don’t have any overnight call until JUNE (my year is rather back-loaded and my April call week has other night/weekend coverage) so — that is pretty exciting.
M: 5 mi @ 9:44 ave, 69F 93% (no social run this week sadly!)
W: 8 mi with 2 x 3 mi tempo blocks prescribed at ~9:00/mi (first 3-mi block ave 8:52/mi, second ave 8:59/mi); 3 minutes rest in between the blocks. 66F / 96%.
R: 4 mi @ 10:09/mi, 20 min full body strength (Andy Speer)
F: 7 mi total with 3 miles prescribed 9:30/mi – I ran them at 9:22, 9:12, 9:19. 64F / 99%
S: 6 mi @ 10:29/mi + 20 min upper body with Matty Maggiacomo
S: Was supposed to be 10 mi with 3 miles at tempo towards the end — but will be REST due to viral %*&$ again. Sad! I do want to do this run because I feel like it will give me confidence for the half marathon in 2 weeks so maybe mid-week next week especially since the only ‘long’ run scheduled next week is 8 mi.
Total miles: 30
Total strength: 2 x 20 min
