I made the mistake of not taking an off day. It's hard logistically to fit in all the swims and biking so doubling up on another day sometimes isn't realistic. I chose to swim last Saturday morning and should have slept in and taken off. My body is tired this week. I think I stayed up late a couple of nights over the weekend and early in the week and it set me on this schedule of getting up after 5 instead of 4:30ish, and I haven't been able to fit everything in this week. I'm TIRED! ANd I think most especially, my legs are really tired. Add the workouts to getting the house ready for showings and being on my feet most of the day in that case and my body wants to be in a horizontal position.
So this week I'm kind of failing on the workouts but taking it as an easier week. I've been really enjoying the training so I don't want to get burnt out - probably a good idea to lessen the load a bit. I talked to the coach about it and he took out a run. I was only running 4-5 times a week as it was so I'm a little nervous I won't be marathon ready, but I'm more excited about the triathlon. And I wish I could afford the pocono half ironman but it's not in the cards right now :(
Do you take a day OFF? Where does it fall in your week? How is your week of workouts structured (easy/long/hard)?
