Weekly Roundup 12.4-12.10 & 12.11-12.17


Days are FLYING by!  Only one more week left before training for the Boston Marathon begins!

I blogged about why I registered for the Boston Marathon.  If you missed it, you can catch it here: http://www.jenrunsfastblog.com/2017/12/why-i-registered-for-boston-marathon.html

The last two weeks I’ve felt so lousy.  I even called in sick with a fever last Monday and slept most of the day.  I went to the doctor’s office but she diagnosed me with a cold.  (I did not have a cold.)  Georgie was not happy with my day home of laziness—however I did get her out for a short walk around the block for some fresh air.

Wednesday I was still feeling sluggish but I stayed after work I got in a workout.  I wasn’t really in the mood to run but a member convinced me to get on the treadmill.  I made it two miles then I went home and took G on another night walk.  Something is better than nothing!

My long run for Friday was a planned 8 miler.  I wasn’t sure I could make it that far so I stayed pretty close to home just in case.  I went back to the gym on Friday night and had the whole place to myself.  Love that.

  
I ran again on Saturday, had a low key Sunday at work then started to develop some new symptoms Sunday night.  I went to urgent care on Monday and finally got some answers and some antibiotics.

My first run of the week come on Wednesday after another workout.  I ran on the treadmill next to Joe—the owner/my boss—which I’m sure will be the first of many times this winter.  He is also training for Boston.


Friday was a weird day.  I let my emotions get the best of me and my negative thoughts wore me down.  I went out for my run on Friday not knowing if I would be out for 4 miles or 10 miles.  It had snowed the night before and the roads were *mostly* plowed but the sidewalks were untouched and it was cold.  I really wanted to get in 10 miles before Boston training began so I ventured back to Cotuit and made the decision that today was the day.  I kept thinking about my last 10 miler back on an 80+ degree day in July which ended up with foot pain and a stress fracture.  This 10 miler was much different weather wise but I took my time, stopped a few times and took in all the grey and snowy sights.



We had more snow on Friday night leading to another snowy run on Saturday.  I took G out for a bit then continued my own strugglefest solo.  I was beat.
