Took a short walk yesterday and ended up coughing hard. So today I tried to take it easy, yet I still wanted to get in a little bit of distance. My solution was to walk a slow 3 miles.
I walked the 1 mile to the library leaving the option open whether I would do a lap at the park or not. I felt fine, not tired at all, so I walked around the park then head on home.
About a quarter mile from home I decided to pick up the pace and see what would happen. Once I started breathing hard, the coughing fits started. The weird thing is, it actually felt good — like it was good for my lungs to be clearing. (I’m sorry, that was gross.)
The good news is, I didn’t feel tired. But like I said, it did cause coughing.
My plan is to gradually get back into my regular training program this week and be able to do distance on Saturday. So tomorrow let’s see how I do on hills!
