I think I might have my training plan of 1 week of lots of running miles, and the next week as recovery, spot on.
Two days later, after my 4 hour run on Saturday, I feel rather tired today.
I don’t have too many aches or pains… a slight tenderness in my quads and the top of my feet but apart from that my muscles seem fine.
I just feel very very tired. I did try to have a nap late on Saturday afternoon, but couldn’t sleep.
This week will have just two runs: a 6
-8 mile 😉 on on Tuesday morning and a 5 mile one on Thursday morning, both easy pace. And I’ll try and swim 2-3 times.
In the back of my mind I want to run, but I know that just 2 runs this week would be a good idea, given how tired I’m feeling. 🙂 Then a nice big walk on Saturday before fireworks night!
Today I’m taking on lots of food and water to keep me going. 🙂 I’m getting picked up after work and taken to the swimming pool – so no excuses or Gremlins can come out between now and then!
So far today up to 12 (before lunch):
- Porridge & cinammon, glass of milk.
- 2 slices of wholemeal toast.
- Bagel with Cottage Cheese.
- Pineapple Chunks.
And low and behold I’m hungry again! I love the post marathon hunger pangs!
Perhaps a splash in the pool will refresh me tonight? 😉
