Well, this Sunday didn’t start off the way it was supposed to. First, it’s the day before we have to go back to work :( and I was supposed to meet my cousin for lunch over in Orlando.
On Friday my ear and jaw started hurting, I thought maybe allergies but the pain hasn’t subsided yet so I knew this morning I had to make my way to the walk in clinic knowing I had to go back to work tomorrow. It hurts to open my mouth, to chew, drink, sleep, talk.. I love to talk and well, tomorrow we begin reviewing for finals. I hate going to a doctor I am not familiar with, especially a walk in clinic. When I walked in I thought I was going to leave with more than I came in with. Oh Well!
I started my morning with my 2 mile recovery run and it was drizzling, windy, and a but chilly but I warmed up by mile 1.5 and then I was done, showered and off to the clinic.
They prescribed me the same medicine my cat is on, we are twinzies! While I was waiting I bought some potato chips and when the meds were still not done, I decided it was after noon and I needed a snack!
Today completed my first week of NYC Half Marathon training and here is how it went:
Monday: 4 miles - 1 warm up, 1 cool down, 2 at tempo (We don’t have a tempo pace yet because I have no idea where my fitness was
Tuesday: Rest - DONE, like a BOSS!
Wednesday: 3 Recovery
Thursday: Orange Theory Fitness, I almost died
Saturday: Long Run 6 miles in the wind, and rain. 11:41 pace which was almost 50 seconds faster that last weeks long run (Last week was miserable)
Sunday: 2 mile recover
Overall: This week was a nice training week, especially with being off from work. I managed 17.3 miles (Which include my miles at OTF)
How did your weekend go?
Any great plans during the week? - I just have a few doctors appointments and getting acclimated to work again.
