still tired


Despite the lack of posts I haven't been hiding and have been sticking to the plan...almost. I think the combination of events last week probably took more out of me than I realised. And in case Jane reads this, then yes probably some of the cycling made me tired but I put it more down to the night/twilght shifts at the beginning of the week!

I've still manged a few runs but I did wimp out of the speed session. I did some intervals on the exercise bike instead. Not sure how this compares to speed work but it certainly got the lactic acid flowing.

Settling in for an evening of rest and carb loading. Which actually means cycling on the telly and some crumble for pudding. Excellent.

Skyline on Sunday?

I'll be there with my camera if it's not torrential rain.

It sounds like you're doing alright to me. A few LONG runs and an interval session - wow.

My legs still haven't recovered from last Thursday; and i've done nothing except ride to work.

The Edale Skyline race looks painfull!

Sounds like a perfect friday night and well deserved. Rest and recovery are just as important as the hard bits. I've also heard in elite circles that crumble is not only very effective but an essential feature of all top athletes' training regime ;0)
