Week 3 and 4 of Marathon Training

So I’m still in the midst of training for my first marathon however of course I had to have at least one week thrown in there being sick.  Wah…wah…waaahh….

Week 3 was great.  I got all my runs in as scheduled then come Friday I noticed that faint, funny feeling in the back of my throat.  That tingle if you will or scratchiness, whatever you want to call it.  Just enough you wonder if you are imagining things then BAM!  Saturday, full on stuffy nose, cough, sinus headache, the works.  Of course that Friday just happened to be our 4 year anniversary in which my husband took me out for dinner at HuHot while my parents watched our kiddos.  Saturday night we were headed out-of-town to Dallas to enjoy a night by ourselves at my husband’s company pool party (aka adults only).  I felt just down right yucky.  No fever but congested and lethargic.  It was fun though.  When you have kids you miss those adult conversations that don’t get interrupted!  We stayed there until 9 pm then left to go grab a light, late night dinner with all intentions of going out with one of my husband’s coworkers, but by the time we got dinner we both were pooped and just went back to the hotel and I was passed out by 10:30 while my husband was left trying to find something to watch on TV at the hotel.

Love my running trail in the morning!

We also spent our evening at a nature trail with our son, trying to distract him while his Sissy was away.  He missed her horribly!

Sunday, 8/10 – 7.09 miles, slow but steady even though I felt like I was dying.  Then my daughter and her friends wanted to have a lemonade stand to help raise money for the JDRF.  I will say they were quite successful!  Almost $75 in 3 hours!  Very proud of them.  We of course went to celebrate later that night with small snocones.

Hopefully this week will be much better then the last two weeks.  I’m starting to feel better, now if I can just get rid of this irritating cough as the nasal stuffiness has went away.

How has last few weeks been since I’ve been MIA?
