Now that March is here, it may be that my luck is running out. I got knocked out by what I think was dehydration on one of my busiest weeks and I did not like it one bit. Brace yourself for a fairly dull week.
- Cardio: 10 miles, hiking
Mr. PugRunner took A to pick up his new hiking backpack, so of course he had to try it out. We hiked ten miles on a deceptively warm day, where I’m pretty sure I did not hydrate enough. Oops.
- Cardio: 6.38 miles, running + 1.43 miles, walking
I was a little tired when I got up, but got my butt out to run. It felt great.
I went to get my nails done for March.
And by the time I got home and had lunch, I felt awful. I went to bed, and slept for about six hours, then through the night.
I actually woke up feeling fine. More than fine. I decided to sleep in a bit and skip walking and strength entirely.
I spent most of the day lounging around and reading, and felt fine to go to A’s pre-MPA concert.
They were amazing.
I didn’t feel great Wednesday again. By this time, I had tested for CV19 several times, and came up negative each time. Through my symptoms (fatigue and sinus pressure), it seemed like I was having a mix of dehydration from a long weekend of being active in the sudden heat and sun, and allergies (our pollen is out of control). Maybe with a little dose of not eating enough.
Of course, I started hydrating and fueling like crazy. The addition of allergy meds helped.
- Cardio: 3.21 miles, walking
I made a turn for the better. Yay. I took a slow stroll.
I went to the Gate Expo to pick up my packet. I still hadn’t decided if I was going to run or not. There is no day-of pickup, so I had to get it.
And then it was time for A’s actual MPA performance. All Superiors. We expected nothing less. They were amazing.
- Cardio: 3.78 miles, walking
J and I finally got back together for a walk. I was feeling much better, although still just tired.
I rested most of the day. It seemed the right thing to do.
Flat runner ready. Just in case.
Cardio: GATE River Run 15K, running + walking
You pay your money, you run (or walk) your race, am I right? I wasn’t feeling badly enough to skip, although certainly not great enough for any heroics.
So I went. The weather was straight garbage, the race got delayed, and then it poured. So. But I listened to my body and did what I had to do to finish safely.
While I was slogging it out, the boys went to the music store and finally got A his new sax (they have been out of stock).
Goal-getting + Thoughts
So that’s the end of that week. I’ve been doing really well on illness and injury, but I guess all good things have to come to an end? Blah.
Sunday, I have a fun 3k to run, and then it’s the last week before Spring Break. I was tempted to register for a race during my time off, but instead, I signed up for Alpaca Yoga. It’s going to be amazing.
How was your week in training? Do you ever feel like the hits just keep coming?
