Do you guys ever feel like this during marathon training: Half the time you feel like you have a 24 endorphin drip set on high. Then, in the blink of an eye, dead as a door nail. Crap on your shoe, good for nothing. It's bizarre but definitely keeps you on your toes! Let me know if this happens to you!!!
|I had an okay 5x5 min fartlek workout. Added some fire to get the mood right.|
|Then the next day, instead of feeling sore I ran even faster. With minimal effort. 10 miles at about 6:35 pace. I felt like my mind was along for the ride and my body just went.|
|This lead to a string of ridiculous selfies|
|Then I couldn't move for 12 hours. Exhausted.|
But then Friday I did a 14 miler at 7:06 pace in the am and an easy 7:50 paced 4 miler at night. I figured that would seal the deal and 18 would leave me catatonic on the couch for the weekend. I went to bed dying to see how I would wake up.
Well I woke up today and did another sub 7 paced 10 miler. (6:57). I felt like Queen of the world. No fatigue.
Tomorrow is my long run. I'm dying to see how that goes down. My legs are in a phase of turning over faster for easier runs. I need to work on getting the faster stuff sub 6 and then I'm golden.
That's all….lol..have a great long run!!
