|Complete each exercise for 30 seconds, and rest for 30 before repeating. Repeat 4-5 times.|
|8x.33 repeats with an average pace of 8:44.|
|Our paces were between 8:40 and 9:20 for most of the run - not at all steady, but that's the nature of running on the golf course.|
Friday: We had five actually easy miles planned - I thought keeping our pace around 10:10 would be a good easy pace - but it started raining 1.5 miles in. We turned back early in case the rain really picked up, and I'm glad we did because as soon as we reached the car it began storming pretty hard and the lightning was intense. We called it early for safety.
|Safe in the car, watching the storm roll in.|
Saturday: So. Much. Rest. I woke up early with my eyes swollen nearly shut. I took two Prednisone and went back to bed with an ice pack on my face. When I woke up again, my left eye was better but I still couldn't open my right. I ate lunch and took two Benadryl, which knocked me out. I took a three hour nap. When I got up, both eyes could open, but the swelling was still obvious.
|I usually have an attack after drinking wine (particularly red, but sometimes white, too) and when I'm over-tired, but otherwise we haven't found any specific triggers.|
|At least they're both open now, but you can tell the right eye is still quite swollen.|
Sunday: We pushed our run to the evening so I'd have some extra time to get over my swollen face. We meant to run 7 miles but I chose a route I forgot was 8, so we did 8. They weren't stellar - it was really humid and hot, but we got them done!
|And the sunset almost made the struggle worth it!|
Did you have a good week?
