I need to start over. Well, not completely, but I need to pull it back together. My legs are dead. My legs are tight. I'm kind of dead on my feet. So...Operation Rejuvenation.
Today's run, or shuffle, confirmed that. D and I hit the bike path for 5.5 miles, but I was worthless. No spring. No energy. No nothing.
Time to remedy that.
So, the plan for the next two weeks is slow, short, easy runs. But only a few of them. I'm also going to skip Nordic Meisters tomorrow. My hamstrings have been really, really tight, and I can directly attribute that to skiing. And, trying to ski fast. So, no ski racing. That's Operation Rejuvenation. Plus, lots of eating. Eating a lot always seems to help.
My training plan for the 10-Mile Classic has long since been out the window. I've done maybe 3 of the workouts/tempo runs I've planned. So, instead of going in "fast," I'm going in well-rested. (Of course, in my mind, I still think I can run just as fast.) And, hopefully, rejuvenated. OK, time to eat.
