Tired Today

Before Tuesday’s run I felt so good that I believed I could finish Stockholm Marathon, a marathon that takes place in 20 days. After the run -which was only 13.5km- I still entertained the possibility One day and 8km later I now see the depth of that deception: Bottomless! I haven’t felt this sensation in my legs in a very long time, not since my 10 hour/week Ironman training days. I now fully realise how unfit I am. The good side of this realisation is that, despite being relatively quick at the moment, I still have a lot of fitness to tap into – consistency is all that is required. I think I’ll do a 10k race on Tuesday and, assuming my time is not abysmal, I’ll base my peak season goal on that result.
