Ginkgo’s Training Log 9.21.14

This week wasn’t up-to-par in terms of planned mileage. I came down with a second bout of mastitis from breastfeeding and was out for the count from Wednesday through Saturday. Blerg! More on that to come…anyways, here’s what I managed despite it.

Sunday: 6 miles tempo

Monday: 3 miles at 5 a.m.!

Tuesday: Didn’t get much sleep and was planning on going with the New Albany crew but decided to rest for 30 more minutes, which cost me 1.5 miles. Managed to squeeze in 3 miles before work.

Wednesday: Woke up at 3 a.m. with lots of pain in my breast and a 102 fever. Yep, I knew right away that mastitis had made it’s SECOND nasty appearance. I still tried to get a few miles in the a.m. (because I’m stubborn), but literally walked home in pain and rushed to the doctor for antibiotics. Thanks to my sister for driving my sorry butt there!

Thursday: Jogged 3 miles, still in pain

Friday: Jogged 2 miles, still in pain

Saturday: Jogged 3 miles in Kirtland (made a quick trip home to my parents for a get together with my high school friends! Connor had a sleepover with grandma and grandpa!)

Sunday: 6 a.m. wake up call to get my SINGLE quality run in this week! Met up with fellow Columbus Moms Run This Town momma, Allison, and did 8 miles. My giant glass of merlot (I know I shouldn’t have had it since I’m on antibiotics, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do sometimes) and her couple of beers the night before didn’t result in a great feeling run, but we pulled it off … and she even went another 3 to complete her 11 mile long training run for the Columbus Half Marathon (mine is on tap for next week).

Ran 8 miles with Allison on Sunday. She cracks me up...she supplemented 'GU' with her kiddos squeezy applesauce. That's my kind of girl!

I'm a new momma, full-time non-profiter, and coffee lover. I write about healthy body image, half marathon training, and recovery from eating disorders. I'm currently training to maintain fitness throughout the winter and break 1:27:00 in my next half marathon.
