What happened to me this week?

What a week this has been. On Monday I lost my voice. I had been a little stuffy over the weekend but nothing major so the fact that I could not talk was a shock. Since I felt fine, I went for a run Tuesday night as planned. It was actually great. I took a new route and decided to up my time a little. I ended up doing over 3 miles for a short distance night. It felt great. Finally on Friday I could talk but I was not feeling great. I had a nagging headache that seemed sinus related but since I was not stuffed up I kind of ignored it and headed out for a run. What a disaster. I did not even make 2.5 miles in 30 minutes. I felt like my head was going to blow.

When I got home it was even worse. While I was gone, Jeff had been playing with the kids outside. Somehow Danny managed to get a large splinter in his finger but it broke off and there was no place to grab. With some amazing distracting by Jeff with a car show, we got it out with very little mess.

Tomorrow I have to make up for this week. I am hoping for a repeat of last weekend (a nice 4.5 miles and I felt awesome). This is our Disney week and I want to get a good run in tomorrow and another one in Tuesday. I hope to run twice down there but I am going to play that by ear and see how things are going with all the walking and the heat. I do want to run around Beach Club though since it sounds like a great path! Wish me luck!

I am excited for my long run

This seems like an uneventful post but I am honestly excited about my run tonight. I am up to the point in my training where I am challenging things a little more and today is the first step. I am running four miles today (and again next weekend). I am working hard since I signed up to run my first 10K in August. I had originally thought I would just do the 5K but I want to try and get a time I am happy with to submit to RunDisney so I will have this race and then another one in September. I have considered doing the Turkey Trot downtown but I am kind of unsure about that one, we will see.

So tonight I plan to complete my mileage at a true training pace (we will see since I can't seem to do it because I want to go too fast which will not be good for the half). I am just looking forward to it. The weather is perfect and it is something I am excited to do.
