This week of training I was all over the place mentally. There is still repercussions from the whole Xmas fiasco. (How do you apologize for hurting people after they hurt you?) And I don't have many pics to share. The weather has me down, although I do love shoveling snow, I am not a fan of the snow and the insanely cold temps. And I feel I may be getting the sickness everyone has been passing around. (A coworker had an ear infection, and was at work all week-ugh) I have had a sore throat for 3 days, but no other symptoms. (fingers crossed I DO get sick AND the BF gets it, since he is going all OCD about not getting sick.)

Monday - Rest - Actually, not really a rest day because I was outside at work shoveling snow for 2 straight hours. I was sweaty. I felt like I got a real good workout in at the end of the night. My upper back was getting tight, so I was mildly curious as to how I felt the next morning to run.

Tuesday - 4 miles scheduled, 4 completed. I actually felt pretty darn good with not a whole lot of DOMS. I hopped on the clubhouse treddy and slogged out my 4 miles.

Wednesday - 6 scheduled, 3 completed. I braved the drive to BSU and actually found a parking spot right in the front of the building. I got such a late start to this run and ran out of time to bust out my last 3 miles. 3 miles is better then no miles. I did do an ab workout from the Nike NTC app.

Thursday - 4 scheduled, 0 completed. The weather was so bad, ice underneath snow that fell all night long that it was a snow day for the schools. I didn't have a free treddy at the clubhouse and there was no way I was running outside, so I didn't run. But I did do 2 workouts on the Nike NTC app, and lifted some weights after.

Friday - Rest It was Friday. I slept in. It was great!

Saturday - 22 scheduled, 15 completed. Another late start to run. I stayed up a little too late Friday, which was quite unusual. So a 3 hour later bedtime, meant 3 hours later waking up. Which means, I got the the Rec 3 hours later then what I would have liked. And I didn't have enough time to finish 22 miles on the indoor track before they closed at 8pm. So 15 was better then nothing.

Sunday - 8 scheduled, 15 completed. I finished off my weekend miles with another 15 miler on very tired legs. I had that sore throat I was talking about earlier. I also had an unexpected gut ache all day/night. But I had 2 people who saw me working out Saturday and had to ask me about how many miles I did and how long I was working out. They said that I kept a pretty even pace and I looked good. I felt like a celebrity at the gym. Do you know how much I LOVED saying to them that I am training for a 50K?! I usually keep to the treddy but I am glad I did both days on the indoor track. My right quad was pretty crampy but I kept running at a slower pace with more walk breaks. I know I walked more then 3 miles. I don't know if I should have ran, but my legs sure felt like they did do 30 miles on Sunday night. I had some major tired legs.

Anyways, just a quick recap to this past week. We will see how this week progresses, if I do get sick ect.

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
