10K Training

My 10K is Sunday!!

I decided to run this 10K mostly because it was being done with Moms in Training (part of Team in Training for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society…donate here if you like!) .  With them, you get a plan, coaches, a group to do the training and running with AND you help a great cause that is close to my heart.  So even though I wasn’t running much, I decided to take the plunge and go for it.

I’m so glad I did!  I had a lot of fun training.  I brought the baby to every weekend group run, and I think it would have been a lot more of a struggle without that appointment.  I’ll do the race without the stroller, so I should be golden (should…we’ll get to that!).

So, now my personal struggles.  About a week ago, I started to feel my ankle in one of my runs (backstory here).  Luckily, it didn’t bother me during Saturday’s long run.  So I’m mostly not running this week, especially since it’s so wet out.  I tried to run on Monday, but basically ran around the block.  I think I’m a 5K-er if anything from here out.  That’s okay with me though.  Plenty of exercise doesn’t bother it, so I’ll stick to my strengths.  And get back to the doctor for my overdue appointment!  The next Moms in Training run is a 5K, so I may still do that!

And now, I’m sick 😦 Wasn’t I just sick?? I’m hoping to knock this out with some extra sleep and Shakeology…always makes me feel better!

No matter what, I’m going to cross that finish line Sunday.  Hopefully, I’ll run the whole thing, but even if I don’t, great journey getting there!
