I thought that once I started to taper for this 50K, I would feel better and relax a bit. Instead my motivation has hit an all time low.
Last week was my “peak week” of training and I hit 60 miles. A good chunk of that was my marathon training run. After that it looked a little something like this…
26.2 (yeah!) –> 10 (my legs feel great!) –> 6 (my legs feel OK) –> rest day –> 10 (crap, my legs are bricks) –> 7 (I should have stayed in bed) –> and so on…
My legs have felt beat up all week (hello, DOMS). I’m not surprised; I generally take a week off after running a marathon.
My motivation is also lacking. I just don’t feel like running. Plain and simple.
We are going away this weekend so I’m scrambling to fit all my runs in this week so I can take Saturday and Sunday as rest days. That’s rough and I’m just…cranky.
I’ve also been up way too late watching the Olympics. I though the Olympics were supposed to motivate?
Speaking of the Olympics, does anyone else think Ryan Lochte is a tool?
Why is Ryan Seacrest at the Olympics?
Did anyone catch this hurdler’s pre-race routine? You better win after that!
Ryan Lochte – like or dislike?
