Fitness Friday...April 4th Edition!

Happy Friday! It's been a tough week. Hayden started running a fever on Saturday after my race. We took him to Urgent Care where they diagnosed him with strep throat. But on Sunday night he was still feeling miserable and running a fever. So no school on Monday. Then his eye got really red. I ended up taking him back to the doctor. He now had pink eye and a fever virus that has been going around and lasting 7-10 days! My poor little guy!!! He was just miserable! And seeing him like that was so hard! I hated I couldn't make him feel better!

I missed 3 days of work this week due to Hayden being sick. Thankfully, my in-laws came on Thursday and today to stay with him so I could go back to work. I am so grateful for them!

Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I didn't run as much as I would have liked this week due to Hayden being sick and my knee has been a little achy from the half. So I took it kind of easy.

  • Sunday- Rest Day
  • Monday- #plankaday 1:10, 3.11 mile run in 30:29 average pace 9:49

  • Tuesday- #plankaday 1:05
  • Wednesday- #plankaday 1:16
  • Thursday- #plankaday 1:05, 3.11 mile run in 29:59 average pace 9:39

  • Friday- #plankaday 1:00

Weight loss this week: 1.3
Weight loss total: 8.2

So that was my week! I'm hoping that no one else, including me, in the family gets the sickness Hayden had. This weekend we are supposed to go camping with the cub scouts. We have decided to just go up for the day on Saturday since Hayden has been sick. I don't want to risk him relapsing sleeping outside in the cooler air. Plus there is rain in the forecast all weekend.

I'm also not sure if I'm going to run a long run this weekend or not. I feel like the achy knee is a sign that my body needs some recovery time. If I do run it will only be 5 miles. And I will take it slow and easy. I only have one more race this season...the Crescent City Classic 10K in two weeks. So I'm not super worried about the training. I also know it's time for some new shoes so I got those yesterday. Hopefully they will make the knee happier!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
