Black Cat Week 2 Wrap Up

Week 2 of Black Cat training is done and it was a bit all over the place.  I spent the week juggling a hectic schedule while feeling less than stellar. I’ve been definitely fighting off something and it finally caught up with me today.

Monday – Woke up feeling pretty lousy – like a cold was imminent. Thankfully it was a rest day so I worked from my couch under a blanket and hoped it would pass.

Tuesday – A heat wave of 40-degree weather broke out and I just couldn’t pass it up. I felt like crud so it was a slow and easy 3 miles – felt great to be back outside!

Wednesday – Made my first foray back to early morning workouts and hit the gym for 40 minutes on the bike and some strength work.

Thursday – A collision of schedules and still trying to get on top of whatever had me feeling so crappy made this a rest day.

Friday – I so wanted to run in the morning to beat the crazy rain and wind heading our way but just couldn’t rally. I settled for treadmill miles later in the day happy to have not missed my run!

Saturday – My body was craving a good stretch so I hit the yoga mat with my furry yogi master 😉

Today was suppose to be a 7-mile long run, but I feel like I’ve been run over by a truck so I gave in and have spent the day on the couch watching football. I’m not working tomorrow since it’s MLK Day so hopefully, I can get that run done then.

In other news…I found out that I was selected as a Headsweats ambassador for 2018! I love their hats and visors and am looking forward to representing them!

And that’s a wrap! I’m linking up with Holly and Wendy for the Weekly Wrap.

Tell me something about your week. Did you get a break from the frigid temps this week?



  1. Sorry that you got sick. Rest well and hopefully, you’ll be back to it soon. Enjoy your day off tomorrow!

  7. I love how 40 degrees is referred to as a heatwave, LOL. I totally agree though!

    Congrats on Headsweats! I will only run in their hats – love them so much!

  10. I hope you feel better soon! There is so much going around right now. Congrats on the Headsweats Ambassadorship. I started wearing their visors last year and I really like them — especially for summer running. I have a red one that I just knew would fade or the color would run. Nope. It’s still as red as ever! Thanks for linking.

  11. So sorry you have been sick this week. No fun. Good for you for getting the workouts in that you did.

  12. Bummer about not feeling well, hope that passes! We too had summer like temps here but I was unable to run in it 🙁
