This week went off plan because my immune system did its thing and its thing is overreacting. But I got back on track by the end of the week and at least ended up with about the same mileage as last week.
Monday: strength workout.
Tuesday: 4.8 miles.
Then I got my tetanus shot Tuesday afternoon and the rest of the week…did not go as planned. Instead, it went something like this:
Tdap: side effects include “pain at the injection site” and “fatigue”
My immune system: “so, I heard pain in your entire arm/upper back and a level of fatigue that requires multi-hour afternoon naps. Wait, why are you yelling at me? I only make pain for helping you!”
Thursday: only about 50% of my arm still hurt and I went home early and took a 2-hour nap. Afterwards I felt up to taking Kara for a short run, then continued after I dropped her off at home for a total of 4.2 miles.
Friday: strength workout. I cut out one exercise to accomodate my arm, which was mostly better but still hurt when fully extended.
Saturday: 3 miles with Kara. Also a short pulling contest because dogs do not understand the importance of running past your house to end at the mile mark.
Sunday: I could not motivate myself to drive to a trail (it was mostly about the driving) for a long run. Eventually got out for 5.1 miles around the neighborhood.
