Good morning all! How is everybody on this lovely Wednesday morning? I did not wake up feeling lovely this morning. My head is pounding and I have a ton of work to do and am just feeling out of sorts. Ever get like that?? What do you do? My first thought was just to stay in bed until my head felt better but then knowing I had all this work to do I had to get up. So, I got up and went through my morning routine, took an Advil, put on a fake smile (which will turn into a real one eventually right??-isn’t that what they say??) and here I am
I am still trying to ramp up my running mileage and its just not coming. I got out for 4 runs in the last 5 days.
Friday – 6 km run in 31:06 min for a 5:11 pace
Saturday – 7 km run in 38:54 min for a 5:33 pace
Sunday – 5 km run in 25:48 min for a 5:09 pace
Monday – 6 km run in 32:06 min for a 5:21 pace
(Last year at this time I was doing 12-14 km runs as my “short” runs)
These are not long or fast runs for me at all but it seems to be all I’ve got right now. I can’t seem to get my head around why this is all I can do. I know in the last year I have done a lot of races.
1-5km, 5-10kms, 1-10 miler, 6-Half Marathons, 1-30 km, and a 1-Full Marathon.
So maybe I just need a break. I don’t want to take a complete break and lose everything that I have worked so hard for so I am just going to keep doing what I can do and gradually work my mileage back up.
So onto something positive now. At Christmas time, my dad and my siblings and I all decided that we needed to make an effort to spend more time together. Not that it is difficult to be around each other, just that we live in different cities so it takes more planning effort to do things together. We have been doing pretty good. We spent some time together on Sunday at my sister's pool!
Here’s a close-up on those drinks that Beth made!
And last night we had a very nice visit at my dad’s place.
He had Palm Bay’s in every flavor for us! Does he know us well or what?!!
P.S. That is not why I woke up with a headache, I only had 2
Any suggestions on my running situation??
Tell us your favorite thing about this week so far??
