An Interesting Week – No More Chocolate Please

Box of Chocolate
“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” – Forrest Gump

This quote kind of sums up the week. It started off pretty quiet and routine and ended with my son and wife taking turns vomiting. G started feeling ill (stomach virus) on Friday afternoon and my wife started her porcelain journey last night. Luckily G is starting to hold down food and it getting closer to his normal self, my wife probably has another day to go. I hope I am not next. ( sending positive thoughts to self)

On the training front, it was a lower volume week where I included a bit more speed/hill work within weekday treadmill runs. I want to start adding variety to keep things interesting and provide new stimulus to the body to hopefully accelerate my fitness. Our family did not race yesterday as noted in my previous post.

I feel a bit more tired today which may be do to the additional speed/hill work but I think it more likely due to the scattered periods of sleep the last two nights due to the puke parties in G’s room. Tough stuff for the entire family.

The Weekly Lowdown:

run: 31 miles (5 sessions – 5 mile, 8 mile, 5 mile, 5 mile, 8 mile)

bike: 50 mins (stationary bike)

weights/core: 1 session of CrossFit

This week I will be taking care of my family to make sure they are back at 100% and then start building up the mileage to start the preparation for Cross Timbers (26 mile trail run) at the end of the month.

I am planning to post one of my weekly 5 mile treadmill workout’s and if interested you can give it a try and let me know what you think of it.

May you have a healthy and happy week of training!

Feel the BuzZ!
