This week got a little wonky. I originally rearranged it so that I could run outside with the Flyers twice this week. But then I found out (on Wednesday) that we had Preds tickets for Thursday (wasn’t on our half season plan, thus why I didn’t know). And I don’t like running on Fridays.
The leg heaviness from last week continued this week. My speed work on the treadmill on Wednesday was absolute torture. I didn’t think I could make it through. But I did.
You would think, since I had two days of rest before the half, that my legs wouldn’t be as heavy. But they still were. And I still managed to beat my time goal for the year anyway. I don’t know what to do with myself now.
Unfortunately, around 5pm or so on Saturday night, I started feeling bad. I don’t know if it was a stomach bug or what, but I basically spent Saturday night, Sunday, and Monday in the bathroom. Thus, no running on Sunday.
