Week 25- Of Heat and Headaches

What’s up party people?

Yah, no, I’m never saying that again.

Last week was a typical work week.  I got in a few miles, did some yoga (say what?), probably watched too much TV, probably ate too much food, definitely consumed too much popcorn while watching Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.  Oh and I Twitter stalked the Western States results.  As one does.

Monday- 2.32 miles   I headed for the lake path after work hoping that the combo of the dirt trail and the flatness of the loop would be good for my foot.   It was a little warm- mid 80’s but I was only out there for a short time so how bad could it be?  Good lord, I was sweating so bad in those short 2 miles- what gives?  😛  However, as long as I focused on my form and how I landed on both my ankle and my left foot, it wasn’t a bad run.  I was feeling a little encouraged.

Tuesday- Rest  I wasn’t going to be stupid though and push it.

Wednesday- Rest I was actually supposed to attend a business mixer after work but I ended up feeling super nauseous and sick to my stomach towards the end of work so I ended up just going home.   Which sucked because I was planning on running after the mixer too.  However when I got back to town, I realized those plans would have been scrapped anyways as town was blanketed in smoke due to a brush fire on the army base.

Thursday- 3.14 miles It was 60 degrees in work town and 100 in home town, where do you think I ran?   Yeah, I never claimed to be a genius.   It actually didn’t feel that hot but I tried to be smart and made sure I took walk breaks consistently even if I didn’t feel like I needed them.  I also made sure I had plenty of hydration on me.  Overall, this was a decent run and I only one odd twinge from my foot.

Friday- Hey, migraine, I didn’t invite you to the party.

Saturday- Yoga My migraine was still an unwanted visitor when I woke up in the morning and it never really eased up.  It was another really hot day so I wasn’t going to push it with my head already being on the edge.  Instead I started a yoga series in the evening.

Sunday- 5 miles/ yoga Temps in the 80’s felt pretty marvelous after the previous few days.  I wasn’t feeling like running though so I kept putting it off. Truthfully I just wanted to take a nap.  But I made myself change and lace up my shoes and get out there for a few miles.  I told myself to do 3 but I was feeling ok so I ended up doing my neighborhood “easy” 5.    I shouldn’t call it that… the hills make it feel the opposite of easy.  I later did the second yoga video.

10.5 miles for the week.  Well, at least the number is going up and I think my foot is starting to cooperate.  Fingers crossed.

How was your week?
