Sour Spots

These were not sweet. I started them tired and finished exhausted. I’m not feeling that I’m improving during the last two weeks. The (same) training sessions are feeling as hard, if not harder than previous and the metrics are stagnant.

This tells me that something needs to change. I’ve been following the same protocol for a very long time and I’ve probably adapted to it and somewhat settled into it. It’s time to shock the system and stimulate fitness in another way.

My first thought is to double up on the VO2 max sessions for a few weeks. My legs don’t exactly like this thoughts but I suppose that’s probably the point. So have I just decided what to do? Let me talk to a few people and decide tomorrow. Now it’s time to recover.
