Recovery Week: 3/27- 4/2 Weekly Wrap

Occasionally I just get mild flu-like symptoms. They used to be tied to my cycle, but I no longer have a cycle (but still am not post menopausal). Maybe by the end of the year.

So I came home, and yup, there they were: slight muscle aches, slight temp, fatigue. Even though there were a few recovery runs on my schedule, I knew what my body really needed was some rest. So I took it. So it’ll probably be a pretty short weekly wrap!

I’m joining up with the Weekly Wrap from Holly @ Hohoruns and Tricia @ Misssipppiddlin – even active people need rest sometimes.

Running updates 


Sunday


It was a picture perfect day to run & I made the most of it. It could very well be my last run around Vassar and I discovered the observatory; who knew?


Favorites of the week
It wasn’t a great week and not much going on (unless you count working on my parents’ house), so I’m just going to share more photos from my one run; it was lovely. 



And that’s a wrap

This week I am also linking up with the Sunday Fitness & Food Linkup brought to you by Ilka @ Ilka’s Blog and Angela @ Marathons & Motivation.

Let’s get the conversation started:

Ever suffer with mild flu-like symptoms (but thankfully not the flu)? 

What are the most halfs you’ve ever done in a year? 

What are you looking forward to (doesn’t have to be race related)?

Half #15, State #13: 3/20-26 Weekly Wrap

Lucky 13?

Racecations are both terribly exciting and a little bit crazy, what with all the work that goes into the front end. For some reason this time I found myself oddly calm. Was it all the meditating? Getting so used to “traveling” every week? Getting really organized because of my extra “travel”?

No idea, but I wish I could feel that way before most vacations.

I’m joining up with the Weekly Wrap from Holly @ Hohoruns and Tricia @ Misssipppiddlin and actually hope to join up with Tricia in the flesh this week.

Running updates 


Wednesday


My first run in NOLA. It was hot & hard, but not as bad as I feared. 


Thursday


Started out slow but picked it up last 2 miles. 

This run gave me some confidence that I would handle the heat. Good thing I didn’t know how hot & humid race day would be. 


Sunday


Hot, humid, but flat – a hard fought PR. 


Favorites of the week
Except for race day & one day with some rain, the weather was awesome. 

Actually race day was nice weather–just not for racing. 

All the carbs. 

And that’s a wrap
