What Was Planned vs What Happened
Monday 03/18/19: 3 mile run | 3 mile run + stretching
I was amazed I managed three miles the morning after running four miles, but it seems some of my stamina is finally coming back.
Tuesday 03/19/19: Yoga | Rest
Unfortunately, I developed a terrible sore throat overnight, and come Tuesday, I didn’t feel like doing ANYTHING.
Wednesday 03/20/19: 4 mile run | Rest
I was still feeling yucky, and I’m at a point in my life where forcing myself to exercise when I don’t feel like it is 100% not happening. I didn’t even get out of my PJs for the second day in a row.
Thursday 03/21/19: Strength | Rest
Another day off due to sore throat, cough, and congestion.
Friday 03/22/19: 3 mile run | Rest
Saturday 03/23/19: 5 mile run | Rest
And now the whole family is sick. Vera was up a bunch crying because she was congested, so I was up a bunch.
Sunday 03/24/19: Rest | Rest
I was feeling better and probably could have run, but I decided to just do some cleaning and meal prep instead, and start fresh on Monday.
Weekly Mileage: 3
Total 2019 Mileage: 88.75
Well, that was a disappointing week to say the least. But as I said above, I’ve reached a point in life where I’m not willing to suffer through workouts when I’m sick. It’s just not worth it. Now that I’m rested up and feeling better, I’m ready to tackle a new week.
Also, I am now officially registered for the McClure-Miller Respite House Jiggety Jog 5k on May 11. After DNSing the Turkey Trot back in November, this will be my first post-baby race. It’s an annual fundraising event that I’ve run every year since 2014, except for when I was pregnant last year, and it’s my favorite race. The vibe is wonderful and the organizers do a great job with food and awards.
Do you rest when you’re sick, or do you push through workouts?
