Against my better judgement I went running at lunchtime with Richie.
I spent the entire morning assessing my physical state and eventually came to the hard fought conclusion that I was not in a fit state to run. Approximately three minutes after making this decision Richie approached my desk and asked if I was running – ‘Yes’ was my immediate reply!
The run was tough on the legs and my heart rate was showing numbers way below my perceived effort; that’s a sign of stress. I fell asleep while I was waiting to go swimming tonight: that was probably a good thing… It’s time to rest and recover for another days training.
