Last week I thought I was on the way to making my comeback from surgery. My lungs had another idea and it’s taken a bit to come back from this bronchitis now. I still don’t think I am 100%, but after a week of not doing anything, I had to get out this weekend for some activity. I know I needed to take the rest week, but it’s still so hard. Coming back from surgery, I felt this was another huge kick in the gut on this road to a comeback. At this point though, I have no idea what the comeback is going to be. I do so much better when I am in a training cycle and working toward something. This weird ground is never good for me.
Since I only did some runs over the weekend, I only got in 8.2 miles total. Overall I’ve only put in about 30 miles this month. At least that’s more miles than the 23.6 that I put in over March. Hopefully I can squeeze out another 20 miles before the end of the month and at least get to 50. I was doing so well before surgery and clawing my way back is so hard. I did intervals for Saturday’s run as my lungs were still a bit on fire. I also had to bundle up for another winter like run that morning and then 36 hours later, I was throwing on shorts and a tank top! The weather on Sunday was just to beautiful to pass up, so I got in some miles before dinner and was glad I did.
Monday: Sick Day
Tuesday: Still Sick
Wednesday: Still sick…
Thursday: Starting to get a little better
Friday: Feeling like a human
Saturday: 5.2 miles, 1:03:20, 12:10/mile
Sunday: 3 miles, 32:53, 10:58/mile + PSL Flag Football
Total Miles: 8.2 miles
Over the next week I need to sit back and evaluate how to get back into a training cycle. The problem is that I don’t really have a key race coming up but rather a bunch of new states on the calendar. Maybe I should just pick one and race toward that, but not sure which one that could be. There is a lot of summer racing and I know records won’t be broken in that crazy summer heat that is looming around the corner. Either way, it’s time to get the printer calendars out and get together something that resembles a training plan.
