Ok, I admidt it may be a bit of the taper crazied, but lately, I am EXHAUSTED, and sore. I have been slacking on my workouts - generally, but still getting in some quality, but shortening runs, skipping swims, etc. I don't feel I have the base I need, but I think it is because I'm tired. However, the falling apart things comes from the fact that I did a 4.8 mikle run last night and my legs were "sad" - had no POP to them. My ribs hurt today - my rt side, and I think I slept funny, so I'm not sure if I should swim tonight. Also, my right Achilles is very tight and a little sore.
I have a busy weekend of getting in my workouts, a Zipline trip
and tiling, but nothing "too" crazy and then next week it is "get workouts done and rest."
I'm probably a little "underslept" but usually that doesn't make me sore. So, am I falling apart? Is this crazies? - I know I haven't really run enough - but I know I'll be capable of doing my HIM without too much difficulty although not at my fastest, but if I take a few "extra days off - beyond what I already have, am I hurting myself any more?
Btw, if I don't swim tonight, I will probably do work on the cottage - spackle and easy stuff - which I consider an "off night."
Just looking for some feedback and maybe encouragement.
