Well, it took almost 2 weeks but I am FINALLY feeling almost normal. It was already a HUGE difference compared to last week, especially since I was able to get in ALL of my workouts. You know it’s a good week when you don’t miss a single workout. Of course, that doesn’t mean that every workout was great – and I already went against my goal of limited treadmill miles – but I got them all in.
I did have to back off quite a little bit. It’s amazing how much a little illness can set you back a few steps. I was doing GREAT at the beginning of the month – I was totally feeling like I was back to where I was before I even got pregnant with MacKenna. I ran a 20:06 at Silver Dollar City and I had every expectation to break 20 again at my Turkey Trot, but it just wasn’t in the cards. And when I look at my paces this week, they were all similar to my Turkey Trot times compared to my SDC times. Boo. So, I’m dealing with a little bit of a set back, but I know that I’ll come back stronger. Thank goodness my body is fairly resilient and I will be able to get that speed back in a short period of time. Or at least I hope.
