Coming off the Toad run, I had taken the Sunday off, except for a few km at the Run for the Cure. I really felt good, minimal soreness and was able to start again with Monday, Tues, and Wednesday runs. A little slower, and I had a cold that was lingering, BUT good. I was planning on running the 5 days, Saturday off for the fair with the kids, and then Sunday's long run to justify Thanksgiving dinner (wink)
Sick kid Thursday, unexpected day off. Hmmm, OK make up a few miles on Friday, THAT was the plan, but with my cold and a toddler who HATES HATES HATES to sleep at night, I was tired and only did 5 miles.
Brooke tagged along for Sunday's run. We run at different paces and different distances. But it was good. She brought her brothers puppy--and I did NOT think this dog would handle anything over a mile. Just because, I thought there would be some training with dog running or something. Nahla the dog is a T.R.O.O.P.E.R. Seriously, ran the whole time!
So Sundays long run was slower than usual, and shorter but SO enjoyable, we chatted, laughed, posed and it was nice to 'coach' Brooke a bit and get her over her 10k hump. 12.5km done.
Then life took over again Monday ANOTHER sick kid....it's gone thru all 4 now (interesting weekend and a TON of laundry done. ugh) So hopefully it's gone, unless Scott and I end up getting it. *knock on wood we don't* So Monday was a weight day, unless endless cleaning counts as cardio...... ?
