Strength Training Week 5

I am a bit late posting on week 5 of my strength training as yesterday, I wasn't feeling strong. I think three weeks of a tummy issue is taking its toll. Add on top an intense headache that I refuse to call a migraine and it doesn't leave this mom too happy. Fortunately darling daughter was a doll and let me rest and play on the couch bed. This morning, I am feeling somewhat better and I am only saying somewhat since the stomach is still a problem. And yes, I have seen a doctor, she ran bloodwork, and I am to schedule an ultrasound. This leaves me feeling pretty bugged about how this week has started so it is a good time to look at last week!

Since we had a mini-vacation to the Big Island I didn't think I was going to run more than a mile on Tuesday. Plans changed and I got a little run in. Short and sweet and slow in order to take some pictures along the way. It was nice and all in all, I ran outside twice last week! My Sunday run was also an outside run. Nice and easy hills.

My greatest success was actually pulling off 4.5 miles at tempo pace Wednesday afternoon. The goal was 4 miles. My mind thought 0 miles. I got home late the night before. I was tired. My stomach was hurting. I did it.

And for this week, I am already accepting I am not going to hit the plan's miles and not just because of the tummy but I have so many other family plans too!

Have a great week!

    I love it when I go out for what I think is going to be a horrible run and I end up obliterating it! Great job! Hope you feel better soon, feeling sick for no reason is so frustrating.

  2. I hope you start to feel better soon. Being sick for that long really sucks.
