Sorry for the lack of updating or keeping up with everyone's blogs. I am incredibly behind in my reading. I hope to rectify my absence this week!
This weekend was beautiful here in STL! I ran a 5k on Saturday morning for the Second Wind Lung Transplant group. This organization raises money to help patients and their families who are waiting for a lung transplant. I work with lung transplant patients as part of a research study that I coordinate. So it is always good to support those that support my study! I finished the race in 33:40 which is a minute better than I've been averaging on my long run days! Woot! It was a great morning!
However, I think the cool air may have intensified my sore throat. I felt sick and incredibly rundown the rest of the weekend. I am feeling much better today and slept a bazillion hours last night!
I did manage to get in 6 miles on Saturday between the 5k and my high intensity gym day. However, I barely survived a 45 min low day on Sunday. I did feel a bit guilty for not utilizing my low day properly but at least I was doing something and going home to rest helped too. Ms. All-star took it easy on my last night...well slightly! :P I plan to hit my medium night at a moderate pace, eat dinner and go to bed super early. I should be completely back to my old self by tomorrow!
I hope everyone is having a great week! It's almost Halloween!!
