Monday: Rest Day
Tuesday: Speed work. Ran 5.6 miles in 58:10. Did the run as Coach Josh planned, but it was less mileage than he predicted. 1 mile warm-up at 10:45 (coughed up lung congestion and then felt much better). [I'm not sick, I'm not sick, I'm sick...] Then 3 x 1 mile at 9:40 pace with 0.2 mile jog at 12 minutes/mile pace after each. Followed by 1 mile at 10:45.
Wednesday: Unfortunately, my prayers and proclamations from yesterday of not being sick were ineffective. Woke in the middle of the night with a wicked ear ache on top of the sinus congestion, sore throat, cough, and loss of voice. See intro paragraph for diagnosis.
Thursday - Sunday: No running. Hope I feel better next week.
- Days run this week: 1
- Miles run this week: 5.6
- Highlight of the week: nailed that speedwork session on Tuesday despite waking up coughing
- Goal for next week: feel better and psych myself up for 4/24 marathon
