We went on a mini vacation to the warm side of Washington. I hadn't planned on taken my running gear, but after getting my new shoes. I decided to go for it. We left after work on Tuesday and had planned to come home Thursday. I got my run in on Wednesday before the 4th of July festivities started. I think running in the early morning sun, might be the only time I like getting up early to run.

Saturday we spent the entire day out on our boat. We toured Lake Union and then did some tubing in Lake Washington. By the time we got home I was completely spent. There was no fitting a workout in.
Sunday I had planned to get up early and run, but when I woke up I just felt off. I was supposed to attend a Blogger Meet Up, but the sunshine was calling my name. We spent a few hours at Lake Sammamish letting the little one play in the sand, and then headed home around 3PM. I took a shower and then passed out. I woke up a little later vomiting. Oh the joys of stomach flu.
What's up next for me? I was supposed to run the See Jane Run Half Marathon on July 15th, but my lack of training has me doubting if I can even walk that distance. This morning I am still feeling off, but I am hoping that it will pass today and I can get back to my regularly scheduled programing. After my failed 'fast' run last week - I decided that I want to train for a 5K PR, sure I already PR'd this year, but lets be honest I am still slow. I know that if I work a little harder I can get it. Plus training for a 5K PR is much easier to add into my 3-day walk training. I just need to figure out a plan as I already have a race in mind - the Seattle Iron Girl 5K/10K event.
How was your weekend? Any suggestions for 5K PR training plans?
