Ever had that thought in the back of your mind, "whats it all for" a little down in the dumps!
I have been covering the miles and feet of ascent constantly, week in week out, since November so since completing the Grindleford i have taken a well earned rest.
having to re-charge the batteries and also refocus the mind,
I have been going out a feeling as though i was just going through the motions and i have seemed to lost that keenness to dig in and grind it out,
The Wirksworth Incline is on Sunday so i will be wanting to beat my time from last year of 40.21, which to be honest is a real plod!
The plan when i took this 4 day break was to just chill, walk the dog and thats about it, which is what i have done since Saturday,
Because of this, i seem to have become tired, and lethargic, has anybody else felt this?
Or is it because i am eating the same but not burning it off, i would say this is the case,
I have a fast session planned for Thursday night consisting of the following;-
1 mile jog out, steady just warm up, then stretch
Have a hill that's about .5 mile long - start dash up this at 80%
Then plod back down to recover
Do this for 4 times
Plod back down, stretch
Steady home for a mile
Will see if that gets me knees moving faster
Oh! and the weather is changing........
