Hello, all! I had an OK week. A lot of little annoyances popped up but I managed one workout every day except Wednesday. I am making an effort to get to bed earlier, which is going pretty well so far, except it is frustrating not being able to get those little things done in the evenings (the ones that keep me from going to bed early!). It was a good week for running, logging 21 miles in three runs, a decent speed run, and a "long" run of 8 miles that I did on the treadmill because it felt like -10 F (-23 C) or something ridiculous on Sunday. Yesterday wind chills were -18 when I took the dogs out; this morning it was a wind chill of 0 and I actually thought, oh, it's not that bad out today.
I don't really have any goals this week except I'm overdue to retest my FTP so I will try to do that this week. I also want to add another mile to my weekend run. It's supposed to be bitter cold for the next couple of weeks at least, waaahhh waaaahhh wahhh, although it is looking nice enough tomorrow to sneak in an outdoor run if I can time it right after work. I finally went to barre yesterday after not even looking at a weight since, ahem, my New Year's Day barre class so at least I am doing something resembling the occasional weight workout.
For what it's worth I didn't have any reaction to the flu shot this season and I have had bad reactions before. In fact this season I waited to get it until a Friday evening so I could lay in bed all the next day if necessary, but I just had a bit of arm tenderness, no biggie.
I work at a university and the students are doing service projects all week. Very cool to see the next generation so active and engaged in the community. (Sure, some of them do it for class, but still.)
