not been feeling myself all week. tired. no energy. no motivation. personally i blame the clocks going back. anyway, i've been seeking inspiration and making plans. this weekend sees entries open for several races that i'm really keen to have a go at. not wanting to tempt fate i'll not mention them by name until money has changed hands.
but i have been trying to make a real training plan, something which i don't normally do. i've been thinking about why i wasn't ready for an attempt at the bob graham. a lot of it was due to motivation but the real issue was not being organised enough with training. and not being willing to make sacrifices, such as biking less, choosing races over recce's and going to scotland 4 times the beginning of the year instead of the lakes.
is it possible to run long distances and still ride bikes some of the time? even more importantly, is it possible for me to actually stick to a plan!
