I kept things nice and easy last week as I recovered from a training-run-marathon and battled a cold. Now it's time to GSD [get sh*t done (thanks Kenny)]. I know I need to listen to my body this week and be careful not to push it too much since I can't be certain that I'm 100%. I have some big workouts and big mileage in the coming weeks. I'll kick things off on this "Twosday" with some 5K intervals over lunch and 10K at 103% MRP (i.e. 3% faster than MRP) after work.
Between resting up for and recovering from Martian, I feel like it's been sooo long since I have done speed work (it hasn't really been that long); I hope my legs remember how to move quickly!
I also have 3 races in the next 3 weeks - a 5K [this weekend] and 10K in which I hope to PR, and a half marathon to be completed at goal MRP. I need to stay strong, stay focused and stay healthy. I have physio appointments every week; the diet needs to stay clean and the h2o flowing; I will sleep as much as I can; I probably won't be very social outside of running [good thing all of my friends are runners].
If only I could figure out a way around this pesky day job...
