Two weeks ago I kicked off Cleveland half marathon training with a bang. I ran every day, including getting outside for G’s first run in the big-kid running stroller, and was feeling great!
Then this week, the wheels fell off. I started feeling under the weather on Sunday night, and felt sick through Friday. It wasn’t anything major – mostly tired, slightly nauseas and achy (and yes, I took a COVID test – it was negative!). And even though it lasted only a few days, it put me out of commission and I wasn’t able to keep on track of training.
I didn’t try for speed, mileage, etc. this week. Instead, I still tried to run/walk when I could, knowing how exercise does wonders for my mood, so here’s a look at what this week looked like. It’s better than nothing, and If finally started to feel like myself almost on Saturday. Hopefully I’m back at it next week!
Sunday: 6.49 outdoor miles — this was before I was feeling under the weather and I ran some of it by myself and then others with FW and LM! It was fun to run with them.
Monday: 3.5 miles (walk/run) inside
Tuesday: 4.04 miles (walk/run) inside
Wednesday: 4.25 miles (walk/run) inside
Thursday: 3.33 miles (walk/run) inside
Friday: 3.6 miles (walk/run) inside, then .5 mile walk outside
Saturday: 6.1 treadmill miles – it SNOWED again!
Total weekly: 31.31 miles

Some questions for you:
- When was the last time you were sick?
- Did you have good weather last week? Sunday was amazing – in the 60s! Then we immediately got cold and snowy again
Note: I am a Cleveland marathon ambassador! That means I get free race entry for me, and a free race entry to give away.
