So big volume is awesome!! I finished the week tired but not decimated and ready for a few days off. Generally I am reluctant to take 2 days off but I have say I relished Monday and Tuesday!
Wednesday I had a big swim and run....Big swim was fine - 4500 meters with some hard efforts and all was fine. Run was to follow the swim and well let's just say I somehow rationalized Starbucks was a better option with the full intent of running after that. Then I had work to do and let's just say I was very busy. I was dreading the run- good sign that I should not have attempted it. I am eager for most workouts....when I am not eager- I need to listen. Well nevertheless I headed out around 3 and my legs were fatigued. Maybe because of the time off? Maybe I needed a few miles to warm up....maybe I have so much fatigue they need more time off? Bingo....sauntered home and called it a day.
So back in the pool today and logged nearly 5000meters. Distance day and I was feeling it. So I am committed to big swim volume tomorrow as well and then will see if my legs are eager to ride and run on the weekend. Letting it all soak in I guess....really listening to what my body is saying and look forward to ramping it back up next week.
In the meantime I will reek of chlorine and have google marks all day!
More importantly......tomorrow I pick up Riley!! I am so excited to see her again and hear about her 3 week adventure. I so hope she had the time of her life.
