Workout Notes 2008 Week 51
This was not a great week. Marissa had the sniffles over the weekend. And then Fran got really sick, and I dont know if I mentioned that she has Mono (presumably from kissing the mailman), so when she got a cold it was REALLY bad. And of course this hit me as well. Luckily I hit that sucker hard with some AlkaSelter cold medicine on Tuesday, followed by a series of doses of Mucinex. But this also required me to do several easy workout days.

The week was already screwed up because of the race last Sunday. So instead of speed work on Monday, the usual routine, I swam instead. Tuesday, I felt like crap. And it was cold and windy outside, so I did 10 miles on the stupid lifecycle. Wednesday I still felt like crap. And it was still really cold and windy outside. So I did 4 easy miles on the treadmill. Finally on Thursday I went out and did some speedwork!

I was under orders to take Friday off of work and drive the family down to Cat Springs Texas to visit my father in law. After a week of horrific weather, it was spectacularly beautiful on Friday morning. The sun was out and it was in the 50s. I was walking out the door to go swimming when I realized that I must ride the bike instead. I turned around and put up the swimming stuff, got out the bike and took a ride in shorts for the first time in months. Wow!

I had two really nice runs down in Cat Springs. Saturday was really warm, but Sunday was back to cold and windy.

Not a bad finish to otherwise strange week.
