This week I was still getting over being sick, so I didn’t want to get back into things too quickly and end up staying sick.

Sunday’s yoga was the perfect way to get back into things.  It was a small class because of the holiday, so it felt more relaxed which is just what I needed.  I took Monday off to read and nap at the pool.  Vitamin D is necessary for getting better right? I also flipped the weekday distances.

Saturday’s long run was rough, but I trudged through it.  I’m hopeful next week goes a bit better.

This week had a big up and lots of downs.  The up was that I ran my fastest mile to date in 9:37!  Down #1 was that I only ran once during the week.  Down #2 was that Friday morning found out I had strep throat.  UGH!  That 4 mile planned for Saturday was definitely not happening.  I started on antibiotics and rested up over the long weekend so am hoping to get back into things slowly this week.
