Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s also Tuesday, which for me, is Training Tuesday.
Confession: I’m not running today. AND I barely ran at all last week. For two reasons.
One good reason – vacation! We spent about 3 full days in the car (1.5 there and 1.5 back), and despite the fact that we brought our jogging stroller, we only used it once (and for less than a mile). We were hoping to get in a family run near a park or someplace flat, but we stayed in downtown Atlanta and the roads didn’t seem so conducive for getting out for a stroller run.
One not as good reason is that toward the end of the week, I started feeling sick. The first day, I was feeling sick and not able to run more than a mile or so. And then it got worse. I found out today that (yay!) I have mastitis, which explains why I’ve been feeling lousy for the past several days. So I’m taking it easy and resting.
Anyway, here is how the week turned out:
Sunday: 0 miles, half day in the car driving to Atlanta (we got in around 6:30 p.m.)
Monday: 0 miles BUT a lot of walking! (23,000 steps)
Tuesday: 0 miles running but a decent amount of walking (12,000 steps)
Wednesday: 4.5 miles running outside in Atlanta! And more walking (20,600 steps)
Thursday: 4.25 miles on the treadmill in the hotel gym and more walking (19,600 steps)
Friday: 0 miles (11,500 steps)
Saturday: .75 miles but a lot of walking (19,500 steps)- I would’ve run more but was sick (later realized I had a fever … and then mastitis)
Total: 9.5 miles
I ended the week feeling sick, so hopefully this week is a little better in terms of runs. I’m going to take it easy and recover in the meantime but hope to be back running again soon!
Happy running! I’m linking up with My No-Guilt Life, Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and MCM Mama Runs!

Car time makes me so antsy. I have to get out and move around periodically. I usually don’t work out on vacation but I walk a lot. Most of our travels in the past have been to walkable areas. Or biking, we’ve done that too. Usually rent bikes.
Mastitis is so painful! I had that once and had a fever of 104 before I realized maybe I was sick. I had a 10 day old baby and we were moving into a new house. Hope you are feeling better.
Yes it is!!! My fever spiked to 102 before I realized anything was really wrong too. Thank goodness I figured it out!!!
