Usually this would be Wednesday, but yesterday morning I took a mental holiday and did not get it completed. So, I did my weight lifting last night and ran this morning. This was just a quick speed session where I started with variable interval fartleks. I did not push the mileage too much and just focused on my speed work and my form while doing speed work.
I noticed that as soon as I was done my lungs were burning. I figure this was from the cold, as they did not hurt during exercise. Also, I have been feeling super drained lately, which did not help this work out. It was still good overall and a little bit challenging, just had to fight to get through it. I do not know what is up with the reduction in energy lately. I reduced my hours drastically last week to recover, so I should be good this week. I might need to try and get more sleep or it might just be the cold. I am clueless. After finishing my run workout I felt exhausted and actually delayed working for an hour while I took a nap. I feel like I have a little bit better energy now, but not by much. Good thing I only have a spin class tonight and a swim tomorrow then almost 24 hours till my next 5k. Hopefully that will leave me feeling less drained than I do right now. Til next time.
