Last week’s workouts were purposely kept low key. I was feeling a little blah and run down so I made sure to listen to my body, take an extra rest day and make sleep a priority.
Some weeks you run fast. Some weeks you run easy. Some weeks you don’t run at all. That’s just the way the running game works.

The most important thing about this run? It was 55 degrees and I wore shorts and a t-shirt. It.felt.amazing. I didn’t even realize I had missed wearing less clothing until it magically arrived on Tuesday. Of course, then it snowed 2 days later.
Because – life in New England!

This was the day that it was 70 degrees in New Hampshire. 7-0!!! Of course, I was inside ALL day at work and had a school function for the kids right afterwards. At least I got to eat my lunch outside!
Morning Yoga Flow at Bending Bodhi Yoga –
Two words: Pigeon Pose. That made my day since my glutes and hips were talking to me after Wednesday’s workout. I felt a TON better after that class.
6.1 mile run, 8:47 avg/pace 316 ftgain
I really wasn’t feeling this run. Mile one had me changing my plan from 6 miles to 3. Bu then at mile 2 I had the option of turning left to make the run short or turning right to go long. Guess which way I went? It wasn’t till mile 4 that I felt like I was in the flow.
Later in the day, I started to feel really run down and like I was getting a cold. I took a nap for 30 minutes and woke up a new person with no cold like symptoms. Woohoo! I can NOT get sick right now. But really, does anyone ever want to be sick?
Unplanned rest day
Even though I slept in, I woke up feeling kind of run down and like I was on the verge of getting sick. Rather than running, the whole family went for a walk at the beach to enjoy the 50 degree temps.
8 mile run, 8:48 avg/pace, 387 ft gain
I woke up feeling better so I thought I’d get some miles in before the snow started to fly. I didn’t have a plan, just go out and run whatever I felt like.
As luck would have it, I was standing at my door waiting for my watch to find a signal, when my friend Kyle went running by. I yelled for her but she couldn’t hear me with her music so I took off sprinting after her. Btw – it took 1.7 mile for my watch to FINALLY connect. GRRRRRRR!
We enjoyed 4ish miles together before she headed home and I continued on for another 4. It was nice to catch up since we haven’t been able to run with each other for weeks because of sickness.
I was still feeling a little off for the rest of the day and even enjoyed a short afternoon nap. I’m fighting some kind of virus. My fingers are crossed that I keep it from getting any worse.
Linking up with Hoho and Wendy for the weekly workout wrap up.
How was your week in workouts?
