Tufts 10k Training Weeks 7-9

My Tufts 10k Training took a bad turn since I last posted.  I had a great Week 6.  Attended KK’s wedding on Saturday night.  Ate an entire bag of Sour Patch Kids at work on Monday from the wedding Candy Bar.  Thought my throat was hurting from the sour… at least that’s what I tried to convince myself but reality was it turned into a nasty 10 day cold/flu/awfulness.


I started to feel better and then I got a puppy!  She has been taking up a lot of my time and my running has continued to suffer.  I have been debating even skipping the race—it’s tomorrow—but we’ll see what happens tomorrow morning.


2010 Finish Line High Five

2010 Throwback: The last time, actually the only time I’ve ever run a 10k, was 4 months after meniscus surgery when Lizzie almost carried me to the finish.  Fun times.


Who’s running the Tufts 10k tomorrow?!  I need some motivation and friends!


On another note, the CCR Flyers will be back in action at the Cape Cod Marathon Relay on Sunday October 26th.  My dad is running the half the day before.  Should be a fun weekend to look forward to… :)
