Monday: 6.5km run
Wednesday: sick, Ultimate *
Saturday: 12.5km run
Sunday: 11km run, Circus School (90 minutes of aerial silks, trampoline, juggling)
* I was still sick, but as co-captain of my ultimate I went to the game (I have all the team gear). Arrived at the game and turned out we needed another female on the field. I played the whole game, but walked all points instead of running. Happy ending – we won the game!
Things that went well this week:
- I still ran a total of 30km this week, even though I was sick
Lessons Learned for Next Time:
- Learned (or trying to learn) how to have patience. I was very impatient with myself and being sick. Was really frustrated and kept imagining the negative impact being sick would have on my training. What I realized though is I have to be patient and accept things the way they are. I’m sick at this moment, I won’t be sick forever, and I’ll re-schedule my training once I feel well enough to run. (Side note: easier said than done!).
