Had a hard time waking up, then by 10:30a.m. I ached all over and wanted to go back to sleep.... so I did. And after a couple hours I woke up again but all day just watched TV and read, and took another nap, too.
Guess I'm fighting something off.
I do this.... I go hard for several days, or intervals of several days, then I crash and feel like I'm getting the flu. Despite my IronWoman veneer, I seem to be some kind of fragile wraith who can't go hard more than one day in a row.
I should know this from many training seasons. I can only train every other day, or two days in a row at most, without a rest day!!! Maybe especially considering I just ran a marathon......
Let's see, including and since RNR AZ:
Sunday: Marathon 15 minutes faster than usual, without my usual taper.
Tuesday: Biked something like 20 or 30 miles.
Wednesday: Tried to run, bailed, biked something like 16 miles.
Friday: Ran 7 miles.
Saturday: Hiked 5 mountainous miles.
Monday: Ran 2 miles, biked almost 44. Started pushups and crunches.
Tuesday: Ran 5.5 miles. More pushups and crunches.
Wednesday: Strenuous 5-mile mountain hike. Walked 2 miles a couple hours later.More pushups and crunches.
Friday (today): Caved.
