Weekend Review

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!!    


  1. Congrats on the run - great time!!

  2. What a great run! I'm always so jealous when I read about running. At times I'm tempted to say "screw it" and ignore my doctor's orders not to do so myself ... but I suppose he has the multiple degrees for a reason so I tend to listen to him (and grumble! A LOT! LOL!).
    Thanks for stopping by and showing such awesome support with my recent angst. I'll be sure to let you know the address for the new blog once I've got it up and running. I'd hate to lose my new friend :)

  3. Good time for the 5K - it still takes me just over 40 minutes to walk/run. Nice one.
