Another week down. I can’t decide if doing weekly check in’s is making me sad or not, since it’s making me look at my summer break, ticking away before my eyes. I still a few off, but the end is drawing near. Sadness.
My week was relatively hit and miss this week. I had a horrible resurgence of morning sickness this week that knocked me off my feet for a few days.
Monday I hit the pool for some variably paced 100’s and did 1400 yards at an average pace of 1:56/100, which felt good too. I still skimming through the water pretty well given the extra weight and drag that I have lugging me down.
Tuesday I wasn’t feeling great, but I went to spinning anyways. I gave Ellen the heads up that I wasn’t feeling well and hide myself in the back. I had a hard time getting into class and skipped a lot of movements in lieu of just spinning my legs to my own rhythm. Ellen didn’t mind and I still managed to stay for the full hour, so I’ll call it a win.
Wednesday I woke up feeling better. I still wasn’t 100% but I felt like I was okay enough to lace up and head out for a run in the morning. I did 1.03 miles and did the mile in 12:05, so I seemed to be cruising all things considered. I ended the run at an 11:59 average pace. I will take that right now.
And from there I completely fell apart. Sickness began to settle in and I was feeling completely exhausted, queasy, and just straight up awful. I skipped spinning on Thursday and felt so yucky that at 10 o’clock at night I made Rob go out to Wegmans and get me Fresca because I had been dry heaving and retching the better part of the day. Whoever said second trimester gets better is such a freaking liar.
I did not work out Friday either. I was still feeling pretty sick and just didn’t have anything in me to pull from. I was supposed to register for the OWS race the following morning, but I just couldn’t get myself to do it. I had no idea if I’d be able to swim or not given how terrible I had been feeling.
I went to bed earlier than I have been Friday and slept straight through the entire race time for the OWS Saturday morning. I wish I had raced, but obviously my body had other plans. After sleeping a few hours more than usual I was trying to decide if I was feeling better or not. So I figured the best way to find was to head outside for a run.
I did a slightly different loop that was longer and stopped at 1.25 miles even though I wasn’t home yet and felt like I could have kept going. Given I had felt sick for a few days and haven’t run too much I was leery of adding too much distance too quickly, so I turned around a different spot than planned and walked the last few house home.
No workout Sunday. My parents came over to see Ellie’s nursery and our new windows. Oh, yes, we did finally get new windows, mostly. The window installed is back today to replace the double windows in the dining room with a sliding glass door and then again on Tuesday to do all the flashings on the outside. But man, what a difference new, energy efficient windows make! Now if we could just get our contractor to give us a start date for our bathroom and kitchen we’d actually be happy.
This week I’m hoping to get back to my usual Monday/Wednesday swim, Tuesday/Thursday spin and at least two runs shoved in there somewhere. I’m registered for a 5k in September, so I need to keep on plodding along.
What was your best and worst workout this week?
