Long Run With a Cold
Sunday Workout: 9 miles (8.5 miles in 1:28:02)
So, I haven’t been feeling great for the past few days and didn’t eat much yesterday. The long run wasn’t so great this morning. Well, actually it was really the afternoon because I finished around 1:00. I was okay with it and just kept doing as much as I could. I walked a lot during mile 4 and as soon as I hit 8 miles. I also walked a bit at the beginning of the run so I’m guessing I got to about a total of 9 miles today instead of the 10 I was hoping for this week. This was the first time I’ve run my “6 mile loop” that I used when I trained for the Pittsburgh Marathon in May. I forgot how hilly it is for the first half!
Once I got to mile 5 it was better and I didn’t feel so tired! I’m just hoping to get rid of my cold and run better next weekend!
I also took one of these today for the first time since May. BLEH. My stomach wasn’t ready for it but hopefully I can get used to them over the next few weeks! I plan on taking one or two for the half marathon depending on how I feel that day.
Yesterday, I went to a floral shop with my Mom just to see what they had… and they had gorgeous pink arrangements that I will definitely be checking out later! The shop owner gave me a pretty pink rose and I put it in an Eiffel Tower bottle 🙂
I don’t think I want roses this pink for the wedding, but it is very pretty 🙂
I came across this picture from Spring 2010 when I played for my friends wedding. I really like how my hair looked and I will definitely keep it in mind for an updo 🙂
Hoping for more blog updates this week! I’ve been busy with teaching, grad work and not feeling well so hopefully this week will be better!
