Marathon Training Days 61/62
Day 61 was a REST day. I was starting to feel a lot of energy come back, and I almost emailed the coach asking for a workout, but I decided he had put that on there for a reason. So I rested.
Today Hour cycle and one mile run.
I don’t know if it’s the temperature rising, or if I am better hydrated, or something, but the spin was a total Sweatfest.
It was a nice one, and I really enjoyed it.
Afterwards I got ready to do a mile and I realized I had left my Garmin at home. The Garmin device for runners has become so popular that if you go on a run without one you can casually say, “I ran a Naked run” and most will understand that it was a run without the Garmin…
I’m not a real fan of naked running, plus I only had one mile to do. So I hopped on the TM and did it.
Bammo Saturday fitness done.
I saw my coach this morning, as he was setting up for some seminar they were hosting about injuries to athletes.
I said hey my ankles still iffy…he mentioned he thought if I fixed my head, my ankle would follow. Hmmmm.
AH well. I feel better, and he is a funny guy, I think I was overtrained and overtired. He won’t confirm that. I also think I just wasn’t tough enough. I think he would be ok with that assessment. He did correct it, so kudos to him. Now. He needs to chose that marathon and such so I can plan
