This will be the shortest training log ever written in the history of Salty Running.
In the week of April 18th, life decided I shouldn’t run quite so much, so I didn’t: I cut it down to a few “sanity jogs,” as I call them (25-30 minutes very easy, the only point of which is to boost my emotional state) and some yoga.
On April 24th, I ran a hard almost-9-miler at a 1/3 marathon (14.065 kilometers and not a centimeter more!) in cold, windy conditions. There was sleet. The run itself was totally fine.
Two days after that, I came down with a sore throat and fever, followed seamlessly by a stomach flu. So I spent the whole week lying in bed not doing anything, unless feeling sorry for yourself counts as cross-training.
Now healthy again, I’m looking forward to getting into marathon training and running in shorts! Stay tuned…
