It all started out pretty innocently.
I discovered something cool and made a video for y'all about it:
But then things progressed.
And I was officially out.
I've been sidelined all weekend with
I've missed three runs because of this disaster and I'm not happy. A 3 miler, 30 minute tempo, and 6 miler are in the garbage. I know it's not the end of the world as I'm not in a real training mode yet but I'm still bummed because things had been going well up until Thursday.
On Monday I had a lovely 3 mile run. Pace was good and I felt good. Belle was super proud of me after my run:
On Tuesday I had another easy 3 miler although the heat made it feel a little less than easy. It was the first super hot run of the season for me and made me remember that I need to wake up early to run in the summer. It might also have had something to do with the Crud that was entering my body.

I also did some work with my new Power Bands when I got home. My hips have been a trouble spot for me so I'm trying to strengthen them. If you have any suggestions of exercises to do with my bands, let me know!
On Wednesday I tackled hill repeats. This was the first time I tried hill repeats and it wasn't easy. I also might have pushed the hill a little too hard as I saw a 7:xx peeking at me on my watch. I think I'm going to try and slow it down a little next week!
And that was it for the week. The illness hit and I was done.
Here's to hoping for a healthier week!
Have you ever been hit by the Crud?
Hill Repeats, love them or hate them?
