Wow I’m really quite tired
So I did Swim/run/swim/run on tuesday.
Wednesday I ran 4 miles. It did not go super well. To start with my garmin died mid run.
Luckily it stopped working at mile 2.6 in a 4 mile run. It was an out and back. So to do the correct distance, all I had to do was “go back”. My time was just all messed up. The garmin recorded a 2 miler, a 5 mile and a 6 miler for all at the same time. I know I ran 4. Just don’t know how fast or slow.
Thursday was speed work. Unfortunately, I was EXTREMELY tired on Wednesday. I suppose it was Jet Lag catching up to me.
(No, I have not recently flown Air Nigeria..the company with one of the worst safety records ever, they’ve gone out of business!)
I slept in and attempted to do the speed workout in the afternoon. BY the afternoon…I was STILL exhausted.
I did manage one of my two mile repeats at the prescribed pace. Couldn’t bring myself to do a second or third.
I sighed and went to the coach. He handed me a book he wanted me to read, and I confessed that I was really tired. He looked terribly disappointed. Ah well…I went home and collapsed.
Today I did my bigger brick workout. 1 hour cycle (ended up at 15.8 miles) and a 6mile run. I was dreading this. It got done well, however, just really slowly. I was pleased and relieved.
Reported back to coach via the email.
got this in return:
The speed will return you will see a shift soon in how you feel.
