I’ve spent the last part of the week just trying to recover. From what? I’m still not sure.
After Wednesday’s threshold with Simone, my legs were shot. The “I’ve just run a marathon” kind of shot, where going down stairs is painful. WEIRD. It was just 25 minutes at a 6 minute pace!
I’ve tried to run a couple of times since, and my quads are still pretty sore. I can’t even imagine trying to move quickly at this point. Hmm.
1. Steve’s explaination of dehydration could be very possible. I know I haven’t been watching that at all during this hectic time (In fact, last week sometime at work I caught myself thinking that I hadn’t touched my water bottle in a long time…). So, this could be very possible.
2. General over-training.
3. General stress of changes: move, unpacking, the new commute, stress of the work, etc.
Anyway, whatever the reason, I just need to get over this ASAP. How do you get over fatigue like this? Time off? I’ve tried that (just a few days), with only a little success. Do I just run easy until the legs come around?
Here’s hoping they feel at least a little better by this upcoming Wednesday… I have another tempo run with Simone that I’d like to keep up on!
