30 oct 2013 – people like us

so this morning the body rebelled and insisted on a rest day 🙂

it’s actually a good thing. instead of a cross-training day i ended up sleeping until just before 4am. having gone to bed at 8:30 last night, that’s a long sleep for me, and i needed it.

overall i’m very pleased with the way my body has coped and is recovering from everything Tough Mudder threw at it on Saturday, and the fact that I have kept up my running is very pleasing.

obviously the push-ups have fallen by the wayside temporarily, and i’ve not been walking at lunchtime as i really want to give the blister as much chance to heal as possible – plus give my legs a rest!

energy levels have been a little flat, but that’s to be expected, and i’ve also been craving sugary snacks again. no surprise there either, and i’ve coped with it better this time around.

the rest of the week is shaping as follows: an intervals session tomorrow, recovery run friday, rest saturday and a long slow run of about 20km on Sunday. hopefully all that will blow the cobwebs away!
