Training has all been a little runnish as of late. I managed to bust my foot up on Mondays run, but Ibprofen, ice and bandage seem to have done the trick and its feeling much better. I do, however, have a mingy cold which has been plaguing me.
I decdied to take a full two days off over the weekend, in the hope of getting better, and I am feeling almost recovered. I’ve totally failed at taking any more than that off, but i’ve been training at a slightly easier pace.
The two ailments combined have culminated to make me feel a little lacking in energy. It’s annoying to feel so motivated, so ready to train hard, but to be basically incapable. To counter the frustration, I found myself making a ‘worship wall’ of all my heroes – featuring mainly Alister Brownlee, Chrissie Wellington and some crazy 98 year old marathoner called Fauja Singh.
I guess when the body gets tired, it needs a rest, even if the mind finds it hard to cope.
