If you follow me on Instagram then you already got a preview of this past week, which was quite busy and stressful. Preston was out of town for work last week, and although my father-in-law was here to help me with little man, little man didn’t sleep well last week since he was sick with a cold for most of the week. Thursday night/Friday morning was especially rough, and a trip to the pediatrician Friday afternoon revealed that he had a double ear infection. Thankfully after about 24 hours of antibiotics little man was in much less pain and smiling again. However, the icing on the cake was that by Thursday night I also started getting sick, and I spent Friday and Saturday battling a cold.
Given that my week was completely turned upside down last week, the first thing to go to the back burner was working out. I’m thankful for the couple of workouts that I did fit into my schedule, and am especially thankful that since it was my first week after ZOOMA Annapolis (which I know that I still need to recap), I had planned to take the week easy. I had hoped to run once, but it just didn’t happen.
Mon 6/6 – Rest day
Tues 6/7 – 30 minutes on the elliptical, 20 minutes of weight training (upper body, lower body, abs)
Wed 6/8 – Rest day
Thurs 6/9 – 30 minutes on the elliptical, 30 minutes of weight training (upper body, lower body, abs)
Fri 6/10 – 2.42 mile walk
Sat 6/11 – Rest day
Sun 6/12 – Rest day
Total Weekly Mileage – 7.34 miles
Hopefully this coming week I can be a bit more active, but as little man continues to recover all I can do is take things one day at a time. I plan to take at least one more week off from training before I resume running three days a week in preparation for Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach.
QOTD: How many weeks do you take off from running and/or training after a major race?
