Fitness Friday...February 6th Edition!

The first week of February is done! I still can't believe it's February already! This week I've been battling a cold and cough. I finally relented and went to the doctor yesterday. I have asthmatic bronchitis. But the good news is I got a steroid inhaler and antibiotics. The doctor said I most likely got this from my preschoolers. The joys of teaching! But hopefully I will be feeling much better soon! And he gave me the green light to continue running as long as the cough didn't get worse when I ran. I actually don't cough when I'm running so that's a plus!

This week also consisted of a very yummy King Cake! A friend was selling them as a fundraiser and so I couldn't resist! It was straight from New Orleans and oh so yummy! And pretty!

Now it's time for Fitness Friday! Despite not feeling great this week I still got in my runs for my run streak!

  • Thursday- #plankaday 1:15, 1.36 mile run in 11:23 average pace 8:22

It was a good week of running. After my long run though my left quad was really sore. It was sore the next day too but then slowly got better. I don't feel it at all now...but have been icing it all week just in case. But it makes me a little nervous about this weekend's long run...I'm hoping I have no new pains or old pains arise! My legs were also pretty tired at the beginning of the week. I have to keep reminding myself that I just ran a half marathon the weekend before. 

This weekend I have 9 miles on the schedule. Hopefully it will be a great run and my legs will feel really strong. I need a run like that! 

Have a great weekend everyone!
