I never did get back out there on Friday. Hay fever did me in again. It’s been brutal.
And, yesterday, I had a two-hour Little League scrimmage game followed by two hours of yard work. After that, my hay fever was raging and I was done. So, I ended up missing my second run day of Week #6.
That said, I really wanted to get out there today – even with it being Easter and me coming off a night of very little sleep. I have a race next Sunday and I haven’t run since last Sunday. This is probably my last shot to get a run in before the race.
After celebrating the holiday with family, I went out for a 5K run at 6:30 PM. I ended up running 3.11 miles – a tad more than a 5K – in 26 minutes and 7 seconds. All things considered, I’ll take it.
I then followed the run with a .15 mile walk, a .15 run, a 230-feet walk, and a one-tenth mile run. In total, I worked up a good sweat.
Now, I need to put out a good effort on Week #7 of Cycle #2 and then close it out with a great race on Sunday.
