Week 2 finished!

Week 2 brought another round of illness. I only got 3 days of running in. I have not gotten off to the good start I wanted to with my training schedule. However, I finished the week strong. Today I did a 7 mile run / walk. It felt great to get out there and get back at it again. I walked and ran and pushed myself a little bit without overdoing it. I am hopeful that I will be able to accomplish my week 3 goals. The weather forecast is looking pretty promising for being able to get my runs done outside. I also REALLY need to get back to the gym for my strength training days. I know that is important also. Overall I feel good about where I am. I was able to get 12 of my 13 planned miles in even though I was sick.

Week two blahs!

Week 2 is shaping up to be not so great. After starting out sick with both an ear infection and sinus infection, I've been having a hard time getting enough energy to do much running. I managed 2.75 miles yesterday and felt pretty good. But, today barely eked out 2.25 miles. The rest of the weekend is going to be both busy and rainy so not sure how much I'll get done. I REALLY hope that week 3 can start out strong and I can accomplish all the miles I have planned for the week!

Start of week 2 - not so great

So, week 2 started out with a visit to the doctor and a diagnosis of a sinus infection AND an ear infection. The good news is I got free samples of antibiotic and the OK to keep training and running. The bad news is that I am so light headed today that there is no way I can run so I am taking another day off. I am hoping that tomorrow I am feeling well enough to get a couple of miles in.
