Ok, so after my attempt at run group 5/3, I came down with a NASTY head cold - one that had me doing nothing from Sun to Wed.
The whole week was a bust, except for some pool time on Friday.
Then came Saturday's run on 5/10. I woke up extra congested, and decided that there was no need to make myself even sicker. The temperature was in the 40s.
Good decision. I got on my new road bike with toe clips instead. After bouncing off the asphalt 3 times, I stopped.
Another thing to conquer.
Today I feel much better, and will get in my maintenance runs as well as my cross-trainings (2 of each). This Saturday will be the all-important pace run, so hopefully I'll be able to run fast enough to be in this half-marathon!
