What a roller coaster of a two weeks its been! The past two weeks have been filled with lots of highs, a bit of stress as we got ready for vacation, an incredible vacation at Disney World, but sadly included little man and I getting sick.
During the week leading up to vacation I was able to successfully keep up with my training. Not only did I complete my first run with the BOB stroller, but I also made it to the gym for a weight training session. I ended my 7th week of training with an early morning run on the hotel treadmill after getting into Orlando late the evening prior. I enjoyed a beautiful sunrise run around the Seven Seas Lagoon at Disney early in my 8th week of training, and then later that day started feeling a cold coming on. By the time I woke up Wednesday morning, I was extremely congested, and I’m still fighting the symptoms of my cold now. Even though one of my monthly goals was to keep up with my training while we were on vacation, I decided that trying to push through feeling sick to continue running would take away from my ability to enjoy little man’s first trip at Disney. Tomorrow will mark one week since I last ran, and hopefully soon I’ll feel up to working out again.
This coming week is going to be all about getting back into our routine. Little man goes back to daycare today, and starting today I have a series of half days at school filled with meetings, and I’ll be back at school full time starting on Friday. Although students don’t start school until after Labor Day, there’s a lot of work to do in advance of them coming back. As I continue to recover from this cold I’ve been battling I also need to find time to get back into my training routine. With Rock ‘n’ Roll Philly less than a month away, I really need to buckle down and focus on ramping up my mileage.
