Geez can you believe I am still recovering from that Death Cold! Sheesh. I relaxed, slept, took meds and after a week I still wasn’t 100%. Actually right now is probably the best I’ve felt and I’d say I’m at 85% now. If someone around you has a cold, RUN the other way and SANITIZE EVERYTHING. I still can’t believe how much this cold took out of me.
So I had a pretty unproductive training week since I am still recovering and somehow developed an awesome cough in the meantime. Still planning to run the Athens half marathon on Sunday though. (Ryan is running the full! No pressure Ryan but I hope we are celebrating a PR Party when you are done!)
Tuesday: mini speedwork sesh. 1 mile WU, 4-800s at 3:18, 3:20, 3:21 and 3:19. 1 mile CD
Wednesday: Sick all over again (developed cough)
Thursday: finally feeling better. Spin 45 mins.
Friday: Rest day
Saturday: long run, 12 miles at 8:25 pace
Sunday: 6 miles
Total Mileage: 23 miles
I had planned on doing a mini taper around now to give my legs so rest and avoid injury so I guess technically this death cold actually came at a good time. I do feel better and better everyday so this cold should be completely gone fairly soon. Luckily, I should be able to jump back into training with some minor adjustments to my training plan.
