TWIRL ’16: Week 16

Sunday: 04/17/16

  • Ran a 5K (3.13 based on the Garmin).  It was pretty horrible….started it with a light migraine….got ever so much worse by the time I was done.  Walked about twenty minutes or so after that to try and balance out the take out I was grabbing for dinner as there was no way I was cooking given how bad I felt.
  • Feeling grateful for migraine meds, which eventually kicked in and reduced my pain just in time for me to go to bed.

Monday: 04/18/16

  • 6.51 miles…various inclines between 0.5 and 1.0%.  Avg pace:  8:40 and splits: 8:40/8:45/8:44/8:47/8:44/8:35/8:19
  • 30/30/30, herbie rehab.
  • Feeling grateful that I finally listened to my own advice.

  • Feeling grateful for a great day at work and a great workout…and feeling that perfect amount of exhaustion where you can’t wait to get to bed. 😉

Thursday: 04/21/16

  • easy 5K today (3.13 miles).  Was very sore from all my weights yesterday.  Sigh.  Did a cool down walk for a bit but I stopped my watch so I’m not sure how long.  I’m thinking five mins or so.
