mon- 40m kyak, 90m mtn bike ride. Tired, lethargic after poor post night shift sleep.
tue- 18k forest run. Felt good after a night's sleep finished run @ a strong pace. Hot, 37deg C.
wed- 75m kyak and 400m swim. Weights.
thu- 21k forest run. Slept better after work (4hrs). Felt nice and strong. Hot and windy.
fri- 90m mtn bike ride. Tired and lethargic after less than 3hrs sleep after work. Pulled the pin on one technical climb just didn't have the mental grunt. Hot again.
sat- 40m kyak, ran lap of golf course then did 8x200m on driving range. 1hr mtn bike ride. Another poor sleep after work but the kyak session woke me up ok. Hot afternoon again around 37-38 deg C.
sun- 25k very hilly run. Had a sleep in after a night off. Spent about 6hrs in the heat mulching/tidying the gardens. Went out for my run around 6pm. Hoping for a cooler evening breeze. Hot to start with but once up in the higher areas the breeze did kick in and some cloud moved in too.
A solid week and I felt realy good on the tuesday run and again today. Had great rhythm today working well up the 3 main climbs, all quite steep and 15-20mins long.
I finished night shift on sat. morning so will be back to the land of the living for the next month.
Not sure I'm the ideal person to answer the question on days off. In younger days I never thought of taking a day off unless I had a serious injury. These days obviously I take days off running all the time. I try to do something every day but there are days when I know I really do need to rest up.
