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.

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.
