Oh hey, just to clarify, it's not that I'm feeling bad or rundown really, but whenever I try to push anything in workouts I'm doing that's when I'm often getting feedback that the body can't do what I would like it to do.<br><br>
Like yesterday, I felt pretty good going out there, I warmed up easy running for 10 minutes, then I pushed up to tempo pace. After about 8 to 10 minutes of tempo pace, my legs began wanting to shut down and I kept slowing down. Checking my blood sugar when it was done, the number was fine. But the big thing was the sensation of the run it was a lot like the bad 10K last year and that bad 10K was also a result of being after a long period of intense training.<br><br>
I have to fight the urge which says, "Just push through it." A lot of training is about that, you push the limits of things because if you don't push you won't push those limits to new ones. But there's an individual point for all of us where the pushing doesn't do anything or much of anything. I think that's where I am right now, I need to let the body recover some and the pushing will become productive pushing again.<br><br>
Overall, I'm feeling good. I generally feel a lot stronger and more fit than 3 months ago, but my body is giving back signals that it doesn't want anymore training stimulus right now.
