This was supposed to be my final BIG week of training before my 100-miler. I had SEVENTY-FIVE miles on the schedule for this week and I got in ZERO... In case you missed last week's workout recap, during my Saturday long run I coughed and actually BROKE A RIB! I didn't know that on Saturday, but on Sunday it was still beyond painful so I went to Urgent Care, got x-rays and found out I had fractured my ninth posterior rib. I was told it could take 4-6 weeks for the bone to recalcify (they don't do anything for a broken rib, especially this one because it's so close to the lung), so I just need to "take it easy" for a while. This first week it was still extremely painful so I actually drove to work instead of walking to cut down on some of the jarring/ pounding. I walked on my lunch breaks, but a lot slower and a shorter distance than I normally would. I'm hoping that next week I'll be able to start incorporating the stationary bike, but I'm letting my body dictate what I do. And, yes, in case you were wondering, I am freaking out a bit about the 100-miler I have in three weeks, but I'm telling myself I'd rather be undertrained than injured or overtrained. Technically next week was going to start my taper, so I guess I just added an extra week. Any prayers/ good vibes/ happy thoughts would be GREATLY appreciated! 

How were your workouts this past week?
