I feel like this week was another “lost week.” I was overall very unproductive and towards the end of the week I was really not feeling well. Yesterday I just felt overall miserable and it took a dedicated effort to get my steps in at all. I’m feeling much better today and I have no idea what it was, but I’m assuming it was some sort of random 24-48 hour virus as Steph wasn’t feeling well either. Hopefully, this was just random and won’t be reoccurring.
Sunday: Pilates was cancelled so I did a fair bit of walking instead.
Monday: The longest run of the week. I was feeling ok for this run, but it was warmer out than I thought!
Tuesday: Mat pilates class. I didn’t feel like I had gotten much out of the class until I woke up Wednesday and my abs were killing!
Wednesday: Rest day
Thursday: This was the day I started really feeling unwell. I worked at the library but struggled to focus. I felt out of it and light headed. I wasn’t going to run- I was going to push it off until Friday (glad I didn’t!) and made myself go out once we got home. It was ok, but it wasn’t great by any means.
Friday: I barely moved from the couch/my bed except to try to get my steps and going briefly to the store. Ugh.
Saturday: I felt so much better today. I went out and ran and then went for a walk later in the afternoon. The run was kind of frustrating as there were people everywhere along the running/cycling path and they were NOT paying attention to their surroundings or their children and I had to do a fair bit of dodging and slowing to a walk to avoid people.
I’m really glad this week was a back off/taper kind of week given how I was feeling for most of it. I certainly hope that I’m still feeling normal come next Thursday as there is a 6 mile run scheduled! Hopefully all the future runs continue to improve and that my ability to focus and get work done also improves! Not much longer until submission!
