Not The Week I Expected Wrap Up

Last week started off really great with some new energy for running but unfortunately took a bit of a halt.

With a busy weekend of skiing and a little indoor cycling, I took Monday as a little rest day with intentions of running throughout the week a little more. Tuesday’s run was another last minute decision that turned out to be just what I needed and wanted.

Monday: Rest Day.

Tuesday: 5k run outside – you can read more about it here. It was so epic, it got it’s own blog post.

Wednesday: Rest Day – just couldn’t fit in a workout. Made dinner after work, got the girls to bed, did the dishes, packed for 2 days away and then visited with my Mom who arrived around 8:30 pm.

Thursday: This is where the week went down hill…or should I say down in the ditch off the highway. I got in a car accident. Short story – I’m fine but have minor whiplash and my parents truck is not fine. You see, I borrowed their truck as my Mom was taking care of our girls since my husband was working his shift. We had a snow storm that wasn’t really predicted and had snow/ice on the roads. I hit some ice and well, when you hit ice you are pretty much shit out of luck. I’m lucky as it could have been worse and thankful my co-worker was only 10 minutes behind me. Needless to say, I went home truck-less and missed my 2 day meeting….but I went home 🙂

Friday: Get through the day. It’s amazing how much pain you can have from your seat belt folks! PSA – always wear your seat belt!

Saturday: Rest  – nap mid day for 40 minutes. Spent the afternoon with Saï and our youngest while our oldest saw Beauty & The Beast at a birthday party.

Sunday: Rest – two hour nap around lunch time again and probably could have slept longer.

Though my week went down hill fast, it’s given me some time to rest and think about other things. Like finally deciding on a late spring race but I’m going to hold off on telling you about that one just yet. I’m excited for it!

Each day my back is feeling better so I am optimistic about getting back into some training once I see my new PT on Wednesday. For now, it’s take it easy and be kind to myself.

How was your week / weekend?

Ever been in a car accident before?
