Blog210K Week 3...or 4.
So I missed a week already. Go figure. Good intentions count for something though, right?
Week 3 recap should have been up last week, but I didn't quite get there. I finished strong on the Week 2 of my Bridge210K program and was ready to jump into week 3, when I felt like my head exploded. Literally.
I had an awesome run on that Sunday and then Tuesday, when I was scheduled to run again, I came home from school with a migraine that put me straight into bed. Wednesday I was still fighting the headache, but thanks to more Excederin Migraine and Ibuprofen was feeling much better by that night. Thursday I decided to give the Day 2 run a shot only to make it half way before I admitted defeat. I guess my body was just so tired and stressed from fighting that headache that it just couldn't do it. Believe me I tried. Then I woke up in the middle of the night to what was the most excruciating headache I've ever had...and as I said, I get migraines so I know headaches. This was beyond anything I've ever experienced. My head felt like it was going to explode and frankly I was beginning to wish it would, it hurt so bad. I ended up staying home from work and didn't get out of my bed till about 4pm that day. After a few, probably too many ibuprofens the headache finally got under control and I actually was able to sleep that night.
Which brings me back to the beginning.
I missed Week 3.
So while technically this is Week 4, I'll be running like it's Week 3 which means 5, 5min runs with a minute of walking in between each one. Sunday was my first run and I rocked it. It felt good! This week I'm determined to finish strong. My plan is to run Wednesday and Thursday and do Jillian's Kettlebell routine on my off days.
I'm a bit nervous about next week. Yes, I'm that kind of person that needs to know what's coming next so I've peeked and that plan calls for 5, 8min runs with a minute of walking in between. That's a big jump going from 5 to 8 minutes of constant running. It's kind of intimidating. I know I can do it. But, that doesn't mean it doesn't scare me.
I'll prevail though.
One week at a time.
10K or BUST!
