And the training week that wasn't.

Last week I felt worn down and was barely scraping by.  I did manage to get in all of my workouts, but I didn't feel like I had done any quailty work. Then this week hit.  After all the fun of the weekend, a cough crept up on me and flattened me.

Monday I had to take care of my cousin and was unable to make it to my regular kickboxing.  I did make myself do 20 minutes of Jillian Michaels 30 shred level 3. 

Tuesday I had dinner plans but didn't have enough energy to running and dinner, so I went home and took a nap.  Sometimes life wins over running. (Dinner WAS excellent)

By Wednesday, I was wiped.  I was having coughing fits nearly every 15-20 minutes so at that point, running wasn't an option.  I was going to try to do Pilates  (since Joseph Pilates was a sickly asthmatic himself) I also had a lot of work to get done before heading to Boston for another weekend of Montessori seminars. I spent Wednesday night getting work done and coughing. Lots of coughing.

Thursday I went back to work and was absolutely exhausted.  I had initally planned to drive directly to Boston after school, but was still so worn out that I went home and slept instead.  

Friday I woke up at 3:45 to make it to my Seminar on time.  My cough started to ease up, but a standard cold came in and I spent the whole workshop sneezing and bowing my nose.  (Everyone else in the workshop probably wish I stayed home.)

By Saturday I felt quite a bit better.  I was still coughing all night and occasionally during the day, but I had to get moving.  Spending my whole weekend in workshops makes me really antsy.  (Not only are the classes 8 hours, I have about an hour commute each way) So during lunch I changed into running gear and went for an easy 3 miles.  I was still coughing quite a bit, but it felt so good to get outside.


I know Boston has gotten a lot of snow, but come on, shovel it already!

and then I got lost.  Oh darn :)

So I officially missed every workout this week.  I'm not going to completely stress about it, I have quite a bit of time until my race. I'm still not 100% but I'll go back to my regular scheduled training this up coming week.
