This was a calmer week at work thankfully. I’m still feeling a little ragged around the edges but I think we’re pulling it together. Have I mentioned my coworkers are rock stars?
The hours were a little more normal and I was able to get in a few more miles than week 29. Not a lot but a few. 😛
Monday- 2.5 miles. I packed all my running gear planning to run in work town after work but then work kicked my ass. I was so tired I decided to just go home. Something on the drive home made me change my mind and I changed super fast at home and ran out the door. I was able to get in a short 2.5 miles in my birthday shoes. 😀
Tuesday- Rest. I made my first #bibchat in weeks! Sweet!
Wednesday- Fair!! I took all my running gear to work but realized I had left my pack and inhaler in my garage after Monday’s run. Womp womp. So sudden change of plans- my mother and I hit up the fair after work. Funnel cake for the win.😀
Thursday- migraine from hell. By the end of work, I could barely see straight. I thought about running to see if it helped but I was also concerned it would make it worse. Combine that with the insane traffic I was fearing I would face going home and I just decided to head home. Why insane traffic? Garth Brooks. He performed at our little fair- 2 concerts in a row- and getting home was a little tricky.
Friday- Rest The headache was still lingering plus with working open to close, I was just exhausted. I haven’t been sleeping well this month.
Saturday- 10 miles Despite how tired I was, I forced myself out of bed on Saturday morning to get in my long run. Well, I did hit snooze when the alarm went off at 7. I knew I wasn’t going to be setting any speed records so a little bit warmer wouldn’t be horrible. It actually ended up being my slowest 10 miler ever, there was a lot of walking the last 3.5 miles. Ok, mostly walking. But this run was just meant to be time on my feet and not to worry about pace. I think I accomplished that. 😛 Then I spent the rest of the day trying to relax. I randomly went and saw Spiderman in the evening…not bad.
Sunday- Rest. So not the plan. I planned on sleeping in, running some errands, doing some chores and then braving the heat for a few miles. Everything was going according to plan right up to the laundry. I went to grab the first load out of the dryer and noticed a funny smell. It smelled like burnt plastic. And everything I had just washed and dried stunk of it. Did I mention the washer was full of freshly washed sheets? So then I spent the afternoon trying to line dry everything without a line. Lay it on something, point a fan at it, come back in 20 minutes and rotate. Everything that had been washed had to be rewashed. Yay. That was fun. It felt like a workout but it wasn’t running. 3 loads of laundry dried by 2 fans.
12.5 miles for the week. Like I said, not a huge improvement over last week but a step in the right direction.
