I’ve decided to move away from my normal Bookish and Non Bookish Thoughts post and do a Weekly Wrap Up post instead.
After fighting a sinus infection all week, I’m finally starting to feel a little more like myself. It’s still there, but it’s not as horrible as it was earlier in the week, thankfully. I’ve been participating in Bout of Books all week and am having fun following along with my everyone’s progress. I managed to finish one book, and have done all of the challenges so far, which have been fun! This weekend I do have a 5k race with my best friend, her first race ever! I won’t be pushing myself too hard since I’m still getting over this crud. The rest of the weekend is going to be for relaxing.

Bad week for exercise and steps. Worst I’ve had in awhile. I did what I could without overdoing it. I ran this morning for the first time since Sunday, but could only do 2 miles before I felt dizzy. I think it’s going to take a few more days to feel 100% again.
The 10k race last Saturday was awesome. I couldn’t have asked for a better first experience! The weather was perfect – 50’s and sunny. There were two wicked hills, and the last one was brutal for sure, but I finished in 58:23, meeting my goal of under 60. I’m thrilled with that! And I’m so thankful I didn’t start feeling sick until after the race. Tomorrow I’ll be running a 5k with my best friend – it’s her first race. I plan to just stay with her and not push myself, as I’m still getting over being sick and don’t want to make it worse.
