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.

If you didn’t know, Nuun has a 20% off coupon “hydratewithus17” and works on both and until March 31st. 


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?

  1. Oh my goodness. Ice is no beuno! So happy you weren’t seriously hurt. I’d say it’s ok to rest and recover! Hang in there!

  2. I’m just so glad that you are ok! I know it might sound silly, but if I can recommend–try and get in to a massage therapist (in addition to your PT) ASAP so that you can make sure that you don’t have any knots forming in your back. That happened when my mom was rearended and had horrible whiplash, and they didn’t realize it until 15 years later… and she is still paying for it.
    And you know I hit black ice last December. It is so scary. Glad you are ok!!!

  3. I’m sorry to hear about your accident. Whiplash truly sucks. I had it twice from being rear-ended (once on ice) and still have neck problems many years later. I’ve found massage therapy helps better than anything else so I schedule an appointment once a month and that keeps things under control. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

  4. Oh, gosh! I’m so sorry you got in an accident but glad you are ok! The aftermath can be incredibly painful and I hope you can take a few days off to just rest and recuperate. I’ve been in three crashes (literally within a month and a half) and consider myself very lucky to not have any lasting damage.

  5. I’m so sorry about your car accident, but relieved to hear you are ok! Sending positive vibes your way for a speedy recovery 🙂

  6. I am so glad you are okay. So scary. Winter driving makes me nervous, even after spending most of my life dealing with it. There is not much you can control and when surprise storms come after a warm up, everything gets crazy. I hope you continue to feel better!

  7. Rest up! I am glad you are ok after the accident! Cars and ice just don’t mix well! As they say, seat belts save lives! Keep moving!

  8. Oh my gosh! I’m sorry to hear about your accident! I hope you are feeling better and were able to train this week for your new race. Ice is no joke! We were recently stuck in a snow storm on the interstate and watching everyone slip around is truly a scary sight! Living in the south, I’m not used to seeing that kind of thing. Thanks for linking, Anna!
