RunningBlog: Week 33

Week 33
Well, I ended up taking the rest of last week off due to the cold I caught when I got back to Sydney. I spent the whole weekend just lying on the couch with a killer sinus headache. (Even drugs didn’t help.) I finally managed to get back out there on Tuesday for a shuffle around the neighbourhood. I was tired and snotty, but I survived. I went for another one today. My lungs feel great, but like every muscle of my body is sore. I’m not sure if it’s the lingering effects of the cold – possibly dehydration – but my legs and back and even hands were aching. So I took a lot of walk breaks and tried to just enjoy being out in the nice weather. Spring is finally here!

Aug. 17: 7.55km
Aug. 19: 7.2km
Total this week: 14.75km (9.2mi)
Total in 2010: 605.07km (378mi)

I should be at 634km right now to meet my goal of running 1000km in 2010, so I’ve got some ground to make up. However, I finally bit the bullet and signed up for the Blackmore’s Half Marathon next month. My goal is just to finish the race, no matter what the time. I need to make up for the DNF in May. I’m really looking forward to it! The Snook will be running the Bridge Run 9K on the same day. I’m excited for the both of us…

  1. I know what you are going through with the cold and achey feeling. I was going through the same thing. But after a week-long break, I feel better than I have for a couple of months! I say don’t fret if you need to take some time off to get better – it’s better than torturing yourself when you don’t feel good, then mentally beating yourself up for running so slow (or maybe I’m the only one who does that).
    Anyway, good luck on the next half! I’m sure you will have a great time!
