|Subject: ||RE: Soup to Nuts - Letsrun Train Me|
Dunno how to explain the 15k today - was expecting barely a PR (55:52) but it was a pleasant surprise, considering tree allergies this week (in February, but hey, it's Florida). This recent jump is nuts. I noticed that the body was really lagging the aerobics - breathing was pretty good in the race. This is happening really fast, so body needs to catch up! Left hamstring was sore after the race, but is feeling better after a good recovery of dates, sports drink, water, and 2 protein bars (plus a smoothie at the convention center). I guess this jump is a fitness and body composition thing, but I'll ask my subconscious tonight to tell me the answer in the morning.
Hope things are going well with your family, ID. I've been having you all in my thoughts and prayers.
How did the 36-hour rest feel? One thing about racing - I usually plan to take the day off from everything the day before any race. Sort of a planned 36+ hour rest. It works, and the race sort of erases any detraining effects. Plus, I have an occasional lazy streak, which I consider essential to the successful distance runner mentality. :)
If the answer to the question "Am I running myself into the ground?" is no, keep up the good work.
