Despite the good rhythm, didn't get the start to the exercise week I wanted because my cat died yesterday. He was old, and I saw this coming for a while now, but you're never prepared to lose an important member of your family of 16 years.
My father drove me to the vet, 11k from my house. It took a while so I asked him to just go home. When I eventually came back out, I was so distressed that I just wanted to run, so I did. I ran -- in jeans and a jacket -- the 11k back home, getting a bit of chafing and properly wet as it was pretty cold and raining. The run messed up my Garmin training and VO2 data but at least I got some of the pain out of the system before getting back home.
I think getting some more proper training in this week will be super important. Not sure if I'm able to do that, though.
