Tuesday Training (a day late) - Week 2

Started the week out well, but ended up missing a couple days due to a cold.  No biggie with work, children and everyone's schedules, I am trying to stay flexible with my training...

Monday: 3 mile run.  Nice morning for an early before school neighborhood run with Gaigai.  Gaigai and Tazer are in their school's running club which is preparing them for the local YMCA's Commit to Be Fit 5k.  This has been a great way to slowly build up my miles and spend some extra time with them.

Tuesday: cross training.  I had to be at work early in the morning and right after Kovas and I headed into Chicago for a Portugal Wine tasting and dinner at III Forks.  We walked quite a distance from the car to the wine tasting and back to dinner - does that count as cross training? :)

Wednesday: 4 mile run.  Instead of my run, I spent the day in Milwaukee - I met and took my first ever spin class with Dara Torres!  This was definitely the highlight of my week - most memorable first spin class ever:)

Thursday: 4 mile run.  Woke up with some congestion, so I decided to take a rest day.  I've always heard if it's in your head, you're good to go.  If it's in your chest, take a rest day.  This was mostly in my head, but decided to rest anyways...

Friday:  Rest day.  Woke up feeling better and wanted to get some miles in before the week was over - ran an easy 4 miles.

Saturday: 5 miles with CARA.  Woke up feeling crappy again.  Super bummed that I missed my run with CARA.

Sunday:  Cross training.  Kovas and I went to my cousin's wedding Saturday night, so the kiddos spent the night at my aunt and uncle's house.  We took advantage of the beautiful morning and being childless to get in a steady 5 miles.

All in all a good week considering I was feeling miserable for most of it...

Do you train when sick?

  1. I'm pretty much a big baby when I'm sick and won't train alone if I'm not feeling well. If I'm meeting friends to train or race, I'll typically still do it...which stinks bc I lose all my husband's sympathy points.

    Sounds like you did quite a bit of training even with being sick and busy!

  2. I follow the same guideline as you: if I have chest congestion, I don't workout. So many bugs going around right now Feel better!
