When you are on a roll, you tend to think you are unbreakable. Don't be mistaken, your body will tell you when you push too much. Luckily, I know my body much better and can catch such a moment relatively early after working for 3 years with The Coach (he is like third parent for me now :) love and respect him so much, even though I might not always do the things his way at first :D). We will have our 3 year anniversary in July :)))
5 days of intense effort and speed session with The Coach the 6th day? Oooh my God, 400 m times 5 s slower than last week... Made me wanna cry. So I am taking 3 easy days now so I can push hard soon again :) Three days easy = one day of total rest and weekend will be super easy runs of 60-75 mins. Well, I realized my last day off training was May 28, so it was about time to pull back and recover... My dream is BIG and as I want to fulfill, running has always come first. Including rest time, recovery and ME time to deal with training but also work related stress.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Few photos about what also made me tired...
Going back and forth to Ostrava to see some great world track & field athletes including Alison Felix!
Raced trail mountain race where I came in first female and won these beautiful herbs for my cooking :)
Fueled properly... Introducing some safe starches to improve my nutrient balance according to Perfect Health Diet (great book BTW!)
Raced on track past Sunday - 3 000 m and 1 500 m ... Turns out it is much tougher after 100+ km week
