I just got back from a weekend in the Chicago area.
When we landed on Friday morning, it was 78*
By the time I got around to going for a run that afternoon, it was 48*.
Of course I only packed shorts and t-shirts, and of course that should be fine running gear for temps in the 40s, but it’s funny how it’s all relative. In the winter that would feel balmy. But this weekend I was longing for a jacket.
Anyway, I’m sure unrelated to the weather, I managed to pick up the sniffles this weekend.
(I don’t actually have a cough, but I’m confident it will have the same placebo effect as regular Day-Quil.) I’m aiming for lots of rest this week and hopefully a full recovery before the Brooklyn Half this Saturday!
Thanks for all of your comments on my Dress A/Dress B post! I really appreciate the feedback. I’m still a little on the fence (with both dresses!) because they are SO not the style I would normally wear, but I’m thinking I’ll wear the first one to the wedding, on your (and the bride’s!) advice.
That’s all I’ve got to say about this sniffly Monday.
Running stats from last week:
M - 7 easy (1:00:32, 8:39 pace) Tu - OFF W - 6.1 easy (52:45, 8:39 pace) Th - 8.5 easy (1:14:45, 8:47 pace) F - 5.4 w/light tempo (43:13, 7:59 pace) Sa - 5.2 easy (44:55, 8:39 pace) Su - 3.5 easy w/hubs (34:57, 9:59 pace)
Total: 35.7 miles.
