A Visitor

No, not the Easter bunny. Rather, a snarky little bastard I haven't seen since I was about 9 years old. First name, Strep. Last name, Throat. He took Sophie out first, and then came for me. Thanks to the miracle of antibiotics, we are both starting to feel better.

In order to be a polite host to my visitor, I set aside my running plans and haven't run since Wednesday. My 20-miler that was scheduled for Friday? Yeah, that didn't happen. Instead, I left work early to go home and sleep for half an hour before I had to pick Sophie up from daycare. I'm planning on running the 20 miles tonight after work, provided my husband gets home in time to take care of Sophie.

So the training for last week, before the strep throat hit:
  • Sunday, April 5th - 15 miles
  • Tuesday, April 7th - 3 miles
  • Wednesday, April 8th - 6 miles (tempo)

Happy Monday!
