Little bit of unpleasantness
So, I was feeling pretty calm about the turn of events this week. My hip/quad area has been feeling miserable.
Today I finally just had had enough of pool running and chlorine, and darn it all, I thought my hip was improved, so I ran 4 miles. The run itself went essentially well. I hit all the hills. It was slow, but it was also extremely warm and humid I mean when it is 81 degrees at 6 am…
Well. Throughout the day, the hip and quadriceps just made my life difficult. Walking was a hassle, and painful. I had to really think about this stuff.
This afternoon I did my swim, but got thundered and lightning-ed out. I only missed 400 meters of 2500 so I don’t feel too bad about that.
The thing that made me feel a bit sad was that all of a sudden I remembered That last week when I started the big build, my coach had wanted to see how I handled the volume. I realized that I had not done well at handling the week.
I said to coach, “So I guess I didn’t handle the volume that well” and he looked at me and said, No…No you didn’t…. We will of course build back up and try again, but darn it, I wanted to WIN.
This is a great time to mess things up, and I admit. I am not at all unhappy to not have to run in the nasty nasty summer weather. We agreed to try to have a sit down discussion next week. Something is just not quite right with the training…hopefully we can fix it.
