Had a double run day today.
Started out with a sluggish 4 point something km run to work. No mojo and I ended up taking the unplanned shortest route to work. I skipped my planned swim in favour of a longer run home. Started the run and felt great. 18 minutes later I was feel dizzy and legs seemed heavy… I fought through this and kept running and told myself to HTFU and just run. The last 3km I actually started to feel pretty good.
11,4km, 4.47/km, 144 av. HR
Not too bad after all.
…but probably doing everything in my power that it is short-lived.
Having ran nothing for four weeks I decided to come back with a 50km week. To further increase my chance of injury I have also being in the forest throwing myself and the bike around. To date I have been unsuccessful in seriously injuring myself and I would like to keep it that way. Unfortunately I’m loving the MTB and running at the moment and finding it irresistible to not do either one of them.
As far as the Aquatlon is concerned, I’m so far off track that it seems silly to put myself on the start line. Nonetheless, that is what I shall do.
I’ll keep training and see.
