After a great half marathon on Sunday, I took Monday off guilt free. I started to have trouble with my allergies and asthma.
Tuesday: 5 miles 10'10"
Despite fighting with my allergies, I headed out for a run, mostly for Marcy. We looped around suny for an easy 5 miles.
I had Wednesday off from school and was SO productive. I cleaned my house, did yoga, mowed my lawn, went to the transfer station and then to my first Ink & Drink in Troy. I never ended up getting to the gym to do my speed workout. My allergies had also triggered my asthma so I was coughing quite a bit. Knowing I was running Ragnar on the weekend, I thought it was best if I gave my lungs some chance to recover.
I grabbed Marcy and headed up to Saratoga for our van decorating party and Ragnar check in. I had thought I'd have a chance to get a few miles in, but between socializing , decorating, and al,l I never got out. Again the cough made me not that upset I was taking the day off.
Ragnar leg 1 & 2
I'll do a full Ragnar recap but my first two legs were Friday. I ran both legs for a total of 13 miles. Cough seemed to stop while running and my lungs still felt clear. Sleeping wasn't awful since I was sitting up in a van. But it wasn't great either.
Ragnar leg 3 to add 4 more miles.
So my training was way off the rails but I still ran 22 miles. With some speed included at Ragnar. I'm hopped on allergy meds and inhalers to kick this out of my system so I can have a great last big week of training.
