Horrible experience. Just felt tired, drained, lacking energy, lacking enthusiasm and generally weighed down with a heavy load of “couldn’t-be-arsed”. Shuffled along towards Seafield feeling as though I was having to actively force each and every footfall.Hate when that happens, but always grateful when it’s “only” a training run.
Couple of thoughts:
I’ve been over training (maybe). Averaging about 65-70 miles a week at the moment. And yesterday’s two runs added up to just under 20.Didn’t have enough “fuel” – maybe two Weetabix isn’t enough.
Too much non running related crap on my mind. I often use running to flush all the crap out of my mind/system/karma/whatever but sometimes it just builds up till you need something heavy duty to flush it out.
North Berwick Law Race tonight - better try and self administer a large dose of "buck up" before then.
Talking about bad runs - Interested to see THIS ARTICLE about a new “temporary tattoo” that supposedly warns runners in advance if they are about to “hit the wall”. Interesting, and I’m sure all the gadget freaks will want them, but I don’t think it’s really for me.
