Ship’s Log–July 8th


Thing 1 continues to be ill, but her fever is at least a little lower. At this point, I don’t know if we’ll be doing to 12 miles at all this week. Even without it, we should be able to complete the half marathon strong, though perhaps not with a personal best. I really hope that no one else in the house comes down with it in the meantime, so I am focusing on serving up food that will bolster our immune systems.

Thankfully to dojo is open again, so I made it out for a 45 minute Muay Thai class. I had been missing my classes, and it felt great to have that part of my training back. Sometimes a girl just needs to hit things.
