I have ran 45 mins and swam for 10 mins total in the last 5 days!!!!
Ok, panic button pushed.
We are now sane.
Actually, this was the best thing I could have done. After the half marathon the other weekend and that 3 hour ride I did 3 days later, my legs were shot shot shot, like KABOOM ZOMBIE GIT ITS HEAD BLOWEDED OFF SHAWT.
I attempted a run last Wednesday and it was as if I had never ran a mile in my life. Cue: Legs are NOT recovered!
So I went to Florida for 4 days.
But mostly rested MENTALLY.
I knew this was happening but tried to ignore it. I was starting to feel some burnout and lack of desire as of late.
Don't worry, this happens after every big race, especially when I shatter a PR. The thought of "doing it all over again" is just too daunting sometime.
My solution? Go short, but FAST!
Next up is a 10K. I am aiming for another PR. Hell, I just missed this one by 21 seconds during the half, so I think I can go 4/4 so far this season.
But now that daylight savings has kicked in and it is warm enough to ride outside full time, I feel like the real training this season is about to begin. I feel like the trainer does a decent job, but it will NEVER replace outdoor riding for me.
I am calling April my "monk month" meaning its putting my head down and training hard, especially on the bike. Last season was a breakthrough running season; this season is turning out to be an even greater running season; however I feel like my routes of cycling have plateaued a tad in comparison to the gains I have made through running.
I want this to change. I WANT to ride faster.
So, hello pavement, ain't no more bombs gonna slow me down!!!
