I am so tired at the moment. I sleep really well when I sleep but have been getting to bed too late (after a late training session, it takes me a while to settle) or being woken up in the middle of the night by one of the dogs barking. Today, I felt completely shattered. Not good.
Training has been going well even though work is doing its best to make things difficult. Highlights of the weekend were a 2hr 30 min run on Saturday and a 5 hour bike ride on Sunday. The last hour on the bike felt really hard. Next week will be a 6 hour bike and a 2 hour run. I am probably going to go to Sherborne to re-ride the old ironman UK course to see how I am doing.
I have noticed a difference at the end of the long run compared with a long bike. At the end of the run, if I sit down it is quite hard to get back up and my legs ache big time for ages. At the end of a long bike, I am very, very tired and achy. But after 5 minutes or so I feel fine (if a little tired!).
I’ve been thinking about Lanzarote and what might happen. So one day soon I will write down my race plan. That will help me think things through and get my head straight.
