Had high hopes and great expectations for week 6, but the world had other plans for me.
there were the pre-flu symptoms which started Saturday the 3rd that seemed to suck every ounce of energy from my body and left my muscles feeling achy and sore.
there were the three days where the flu was actively living inside my body making me feel like my insides had been taken over by aliens.
I'm in the post-flu days where life is slowly beginning to come back into my body and trying to resume life as normal.
Still somehow managed to squeeze in 50 extremely slow and easy miles this week with 1and a half strength sessions, so I'll call it a semi-successful week for me. It's nearly impossible to gain fitness when ill, but I don't think that I've lost any and after feeling like hell for so many days this week I'll gladly accept any and all workouts that happened in the past few days...no matter how terrible they may have been.
Sadly in my illness I did miss quite a few incredibly beautiful and mild days
Ahhh, spring is just around the bend
Hoping to pick up next week right where I left off, but those are loose plans at this time.
Flexible goals for Week 7
Mileage in the high 60's
3 strength sessions
1-2 yoga classes
1 key workout to prep for the Shamrock Shuffle 8k, which is now just 2 weeks away
7 runs total
Ambitious, yes...but I wouldn't have it any other way
