Post Work Three Miler: 8/30

After Monday's workout, I went to the Doctor to follow up on my breathing issues.  The doctor seems to think that I have developed a form of Asthma as a result of my flu.  They don't think it is serious, and should eventually clear up on it's own, but in the meantime I am back on the inhalers. 
Tuesday's run a little difficult because of some soreness from the previous day's workout rather than the breathing.  I did 3 miles in 29:49.20 for a 9:56 pace.  I am on the fourth week of my Half Marathon training plan and am scheduled to hit 18 miles for the week.  Last week I got a little off plan because of the Raleigh 8000 and ended up hitting 19 miles, which combined with my cross-training, has left me a bit tired.   I wouldn't go so far as to say that I am back to normal, but I am to the point where I worry about completing my runs or workout, but I am going to have to manage my rest days and pay close attention the wear on my body.  Overall, I am enjoying my training and a looking forward to running the longer distances. 

Today's run:

Mile 1 -- 9:57
Mile 2 -- 10:14
Mile 3 -- 9:35

  1. Sorry about the lingering breathing issues, but you have to listen to what your body is saying.
