The Fairest Week In Review: 8/16

I was at a conference last Sunday afternoon through Thursday morning, so my schedule was a bit discombobulated - no lunchtime walks and in some cases unfamiliar running territory. I did do a fair amount of power-walking around the conference center, though, which added to my daily count step even if it's not GPS official. Here's how all the official stuff went down:

Sunday | ran 14.22 miles on the treadmill in 2:25
Woke up to the exciting realization that I was getting Pat's cold, but I had 14 miles on the schedule and BY GOD I WAS RUNNING 14 MILES. So I did. And it actually went pretty well, which makes me feel optimistic about my 16 miler next week when I hopefully will not feel my ears when I swallow. But the rule is that if all your symptoms are above your chest, you're cool, right?

Monday | ran 3.53 miles on the treadmill in 40 minutes
Cold moved away from my throat so I did this run as planned. Sad that this hotel gym did not have flavored water like last year's.

Tuesday | Conference 5K in National Harbor; 3.1 miles in 33 minutes

Wednesday | rest
I had planned 4-5 miles AND a ballet class, but my cold had progressed to Coughing Mode and I elected to sleep in and chill my night away.

Thursday | ran 5.41 miles on the treadmill in 1:00
I had planned to go to ballet this night too, and technically I COULD have done it - but I was post-conference tired and kind of still in recovery mode so I wimped out. I'll get back on track next week.

Friday | ran 5.91 miles on the treadmill in 1:05

Saturday | rest

Monday is my 16 miler. Send good thoughts.
