I've started training in earnest again - one week under my belt. Felt a bit like i was starting at rock bottom, but this of course is relative for me. Ran 5 miles five days ago and i'm still sore - the run felt sloppy, like i was doing it for the first time - and felt pretty tough throughout.
I'm still eating everything in sight, sleeping 9-10 hours a day, and drinking loads of coffee....isn't this all part of the recovery process. Not sure how much longer i can claim to be in this phase though. I'm off to Bemidjii this afternoon for "work" and think i'll 'drag' the tire along for a sprint workout. Right back into the deep end.
I've also committed to having another go at Nationals this year. The race is about 8 weeks away - pretty close to my perfect period for for peaking. Wow. thats some sweet alliteration.
