Marathon Training Log: Week 5

As you all know, I'm running the Chicago Marathon on October 13 to support Bright Pink. I've been meaning to update you with my training progress weekly, but lots of travel in June and then the holiday last week got me behind in blogging. We're already through Week 5 (out of 18) for marathon training but I'm finally going to start updating weekly! Please support my training efforts by helping me reach my fundraising goal with Bright Pink!

I was supposed to run 10 miles on Saturday morning but decided to take it easy with only one workout (which was not that easy). I felt sick on Friday morning and again on Saturday, like I was coming down with a cold. I ate a ton of vegetables and got lots of sleep so it went away and I feel better now. I've always been the type of person that gets sick a lot with colds and sinus infections but I haven't been full-on sick since January! I think some of the things I learned with Karyn's Raw Detox have really helped boost my immune system. Good nutrition and sleep is really the key to being healthy.

Sunday - Rest Day!
