I ended up taking two ENTIRE days off last week after a little stretch of no-appetite-not-sleeping-well. Coach flat-out said don’t argue, and I didn’t.
I made my comeback with the windiest long run ever on Saturday (my last before Fargo!)
And then yesterday my mile repeats didn’t quite go off like they should have because of stomach problems. AGAIN.
So frustrating. The most frustrating part is that I’ve been trying REALLY hard to eat clean lately–I log everything I eat, have almost completely given up dairy, cut out most of the processed sugar crap that used to be lurking in my diet. And this is how my body repays me.
So I’m making adjustments, swearing off some (MORE) things that seem to cause me problems, and moving on.
More mile repeats tomorrow. 10k on Saturday (the 10k that was my first race ever last year!) I’m hoping to take a solid 10 minutes off my time from last May–maybe more?
I’ve been feeling pretty lackluster about my training for a couple weeks now, and I don’t think it’s any coincidence I haven’t killed any of my workouts. That’s pretty lame, huh?
I can’t change what’s already happened. But I have total control over what I do next.
Hope putting it in writing makes me remember it better : )
