Traning For: Stowe 8 Miler?
What Was Planned vs. What Happened
Monday 06/05/17: 3 Mile Run | Rest
My abs were still REALLY sore from Friday’s CF workout, so I decided to take an extra rest day to fully recover.
Tuesday 06/06/17: CrossFit | Rest
Another rainy day plus evening plans meant another unplanned rest day, boo.
Wednesday 06/07/17: Tempo | 4 Mile Tempo
My training plan called for 40 minutes of tempo, but I realized I hate running for time. I changed on the fly to a 4 mile tempo run, and will convert the rest of my schedule to miles also.

This was a tough one. First we did 10 x 50 m sprint drills, and then 21-15-9-5 hang snatches and box jumps, beginning each round with a 400-300-200-100 m run. I learned on this day that I need to start wearing my running shoes to class, because now that it’s summer we’re doing a lot more running in class, and my feet and Achilles tendons were NOT happy after this workout.

Going to CF two days in a row is still really difficult. We worked on back squats, then did 50-40-30-20-10 wall ball shots, push ups, candlestick rolls, pull ups and rope climbs, with a wall walk between each round. I wanted to die the entire time, and didn’t make it through the pull ups (ring rows for me).
Saturday 06/10/17: Rest | Rest
Nailed it! Did some stuff around the house, went to my Vermont Stage Company audition, and went to a party.
Sunday 06/11/17: 6 Mile Run | Rest
I woke up in the middle of the night with a terrible sore throat, and never really got back to sleep. After my fundraiser obligation in the morning, I came home and just laid in bed watching Netflix even though it was such a gorgeous day. I felt like crap.
Unsurprisingly, I slept like crap again last night and woke up this morning with a full blown head cold. My ears and sinuses are all plugged up and it feels like I have sandpaper covered golfballs where my tonsils should be. I’m hoping that with a few doses of Emergen-C and Zicam I can kick this before the weekend. Being sick during the summer is the WORST.
What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re home sick? I love to watch movies and snuggle my kitties.
