Training For Zack’s Place Turkey Trot 5k – Week Two
What Was Planned vs. What Happened
Monday 10/08/18: 2 Easy Miles | 2 Miles at 11:13 Pace
I’m trying not to do too much too soon, so keeping one of my easy runs nice and short seems like a great idea for now.
Tuesday 10/09/18: Core & Arms | Rest
It was a gorgeous day, so we did lots of stuff around the house, but no workouts for me. Oops!
Wednesday 10/10/18: Postnatal Yoga & Tempo Run | 1 up, 1 fast, 1 down
Vera was up nursing every 1.5 hours, so we stayed in bed super late and I missed my yoga class. But after making an appointment with our pediatrician and a hefty dose of caffeine, I went out to run. I was under fueled and overtired but I got it done.
Thursday 10/11/18: Core & Booty | Rest
I developed a bad sore throat overnight, and Vera had another rough night, so I took a full rest day.
Friday 10/12/18: 3 Easy Miles | Rest
Sore throat + baby up between 2:30 and 4:30 = rest day.
Saturday 10/13/18: Rest| Rest
We attended our friends Peter and Lizzie’s wedding, leaving Vera with some friends. It was nice to have a baby-free day for only the second time since she was born!
Sunday 10/14/18: 4 Miles | Rest
I woke up with a full blown head cold, and sat around most of the day with the babe.
Weekly Miles: 5
2018 Miles: 52
This week was completely thrown off by multiple factors: a fussy baby, a head cold, and, TMI alert: a milk blister on my left nipple. Yeah, that’s a thing, and it’s exactly as painful and shitty as it sounds.
I saw my midwife today and got some “Triple Nipple” ointment for my blister, but my head is still full of junk, so I’ve already missed the first run of this week. I’m planning to rest tomorrow as well, and pick up with an interval run for “Workout Wednesday” if I’m feeling better. Being sick and having a small baby to care for is no joke. Thank god Ben is home on paternity leave, otherwise I’d be in a lot worse shape.
