This was supposed to by my highest mileage week post-injury, but I didn't count on getting sick and spending all day Saturday in bed with a fever.
Monday 10/14/13 - RUN 3.1 in 32:11 (10:22 pace), then STRENGTH - some arms and abs
Tuesday 10/15/13 - BIKE just under 14 miles in an hour. Didn't really have much oompf and I think this was the start of feeling sick.
Wednesday 10/16/13 - Didn't feel up to much. Stretch, ice and roll for 20 min was all I did.
Thursday 10/17/13 - RUN 4.5 miles in 44:32 (9:52 average). This included two 1600 sprints at 8:5x pace, plus warm up, cool down and 800 job in between the intervals.
Friday 10/18/13 - SWIM 1400 yds in 47 minutes.
Saturday 10/19/13 - nada, zilch, zip, nothing. Had a fever that started Friday night and stayed with me all day. This was supposed to be an 8 mile run. Sad.
Sunday 10/20/13 - I volunteered at the Grand Rapids Marathon for about 5 hours. I don't think handing out water counts as exercise.
Went to the doctor today and I have a sinus infection. Hopefully the antibiotics will get me feeling better soon. I'm still running (ran today and yesterday) but I definitely don't feel 100%.
