#WDWMarathonTraining Week 13

by Meghann on November 22, 2016

This was NOT a good week of running.


Yikes! It was actually a terrible week of running. Only two 3-mile runs and no long runs?! What happened here?!

I was sick. That’s what happened.

It was a terrible week of running because I felt terrible. My head hurt, my throat hurt, and I could barely breathe out of my congested nose. I’m such a baby when I’m sick, and this week was so exception. Once upon a time I would have been able to rally around a cold and stick it out for some decent runs, but I just couldn’t do it this time. The two runs I did manage were horrific. My body wanted rest and it was fighting me every second I was out on my feet.

So when the weekend came, I opted for rest instead. Sometimes we need to listen to our bodies and realize it’s not the end of the world if we miss a long run. This week is about recovery, next week I’ll get back to kicking ass.


  • Distance: 3 mi
  • Time: n/a
  • Pace: n/a

I forgot to pause my watch when I was done so I don’t have a final time.


  • Distance: 3 mi
  • Time: n/a
  • Pace: n/a

I didn’t wear my watch for this one – I knew it wasn’t going to be pretty.

For what it’s worth, the rest was worth it. I’m feeling so much better and ready to conquer another week of training!

I’m glad you took the rest you needed. I hope you’re feeling better! Happy Thanksgiving ๐Ÿ™‚

I can totally understand your panic! I think the rest has done you well because then you’ll be able to do the best you can do next week. This is advice I tell other people but I have the hardest time accepting myself. ๐Ÿ˜›
