Salty’s Training Log – 5.06.12

10 week pregnant and I’m feeling a tad better. My nausea medication ran out midweek. The first day with no meds I didn’t puke, but then puked on both Friday and Saturday mornings as soon as I got out of bed. Today I didn’t puke, had a great 5k “race” and felt pretty good most of the day. I even was able to poop almost normally today for the first time in weeks! (sorry-tmi!) I feel like I’m on the up and up. And my running reflects that.

Unfortunately, I've become very well acquainted with toilets over the last few weeks. I swear I'll get back to better picture taking soon! Image via Wikipedia.

I even managed to do a decent track workout on Tuesday. It was warm and I had a pretty bad morning, but somehow I felt pretty good once I got going. Ginger’s beau James is recovering from hernia surgery and he and I ran with our friend and teammate Barb. One day we’ll tell you all about her. She’s 61 and incredible. She ran an 85 400 on Tuesday!

Anyway, the workout was 2 x 800 (2:00 rest), 4 x 400 (1:30 rest) and then 8 x 200. I just made it through the 400’s. I ran 3:18; 3:12 for the 800’s. And then 93; 89; 92; 83 for the 400’s. It felt great to just GO the last one, but after I was done I was toast! Nevertheless I was really happy with the workout and the fact that it felt good.

With the track workout, the “race” a few easy runs I got out 5 days this week for 24 miles. Much better than the 8 next week. Can I hit 30 this week? We shall see!

Salty Running boss and mother of 3 little ones with PRs of 3:10:15 (26.2), 1:25:59 (13.1) and 18:15 (5k). I love to write about running culture, mental training, and fitting in a serious running habit with the rest of a busy life.
