Little bump in the road, but on we go!

Monday, December 03, 2012

Right before Thanksgiving I got sick. Started with a sore throat and just tired... turned into a chest cold and nasty sore throat. Unfortunately, when you have a big family you can't just "check out," especially during a major holiday! So I did too much, didn't get the rest I needed, and it took about a week to get through it. Ugh. I was wiped out and couldn't even think about getting any workouts in (I would cough to death and then keel over if I tried!) and comfort foods was the only thing on my menu.

BUT as of Thursday, I was feeling much better so I did a short run. As soon as I started feeling chesty, I stopped and did my stretch routine. The weekend hit, and with hubbie working and kids running, I didn't get back in to the workout center until today.

But here's the cool part! I was feeling great, and I BEAT MY BEST 5K TIME!!!! I had done 30:11 at a 5K race in April. Tonight I finished in 30:06! WOOHOO!!!! I am so psyched! This has me pumped to get back to my bootcamp challenge and shave that time down to under 30. I am SO CLOSE!!! emoticon

I'm going to get there! Oh yeah!

    I have no idea how you run that fast.
    I walk for an hour and I'm shot.
    I ended up taking yesterday off because day 6 was about to kill my knee's.
    I did end up with 14.5 miles for the week and that's pretty good for me.
    Probably I went about it full force though. Such is life and I do everything that way. LOL
    Yesterday I went to Grand Rapdis....and bought one of those foam cylinders they have on the SP video's for exercise.
    now I just have to figure out how to use it.
    Today is my last day off. I have water aerobics in the morning and then have to cook some food for my lunch bucket for the rest of the week. I work Tuesday, Wednesday, thursday Day shift. 6am to 6 pm. Then swing to night shift for Friday, Saturday and sunday. 6 pm to 6 am.
    72 hours in 6 days. this is the week I struggle to get exercise in.
    I'm glad your feeling better cause I sure did miss you.
