I caught it around Tuesday morning, so I decided to forego my morning run (despite my best efforts, pictured above) and try to do it around the afternoon. I didn't feel too bad - I was just uncomfortable.
I decided to conquer the treadmill once again.
|First 5 Miles|
|Last 2 Miles|
I paused my Nike Running app when it said I had gotten to 5 miles, and didn't pause the treadmill until it said I had run 5 miles. Then, I unpaused it and ran the last two miles. So, the distances are FINALLY similar, but who knows how far/fast I actually ran.
I felt awesome during the workout. Not sick or anything. I started out around 5.5mph and just kept bumping it up. My fastest was 6.5mph, which I maintained for a while- I thought that was pretty impressive!
I went to the doctor on Wednesday morning and found out that it was just a viral infection - figures - and there was nothing to be done about it. I took the rest of the day to rest (no NTC workout for me!) and after a good night's sleep I feel much better! So maybe that's the end of it??
5 Miles on Thursday, and 20 Miles on Saturday. My longest training run before the marathon.. SO NERVOUS!!
