Training Summary: 1/1/2018-1/7/2018
This week’s training went relatively well with one little hiccup, on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning I was struck down by some sort of stomach bug or flu. I was down for the count and threw up a few times but it resolved pretty quickly which I’m thankful for. After I was feel better on Friday and had managed to have two substantial meals that day I tried a short, 4 mile run. It was super duper slow for me since I was still a little weak but the fresh air did wonders for me!
All things considered, I’m happy with my highest mileage week since my last marathon (43) and my first workout in over 5 weeks! I even got in 1 session with my mini-bands and a 30 minute strength session at the gym! I’ve got to be better with the strength and ancillary workouts going forward but I’m glad to slowly but surely getting myself back on track. I have my first half marathon of the winter/spring in 4 weeks so it’s time to get serious again!
