slow and sluggish

the week so far can be sumarised as slow and sluggish basically the effect of doing 120ks in 4 days has been felt, and amplified by the eventual need to compress a lot of distance into fewer sessions than intended. so a rest day on Tuesday, a run that became a walk yesterday, and a

4 days, 120ks…

this weekend has been a bit hectic to say the least, and it’s been hard work to fit in time for training, let alone journaling! two big reasons for that; firstly I am now on day four of a “120 kms in four days” challenge – i.e. to do 120km of walking and running in

ok, let’s try that again…

it’s been a frustrating few weeks, just as I was getting back into the swing of things, I fell during an event and lost a couple of days as I recovered from that. then just as I was getting into the swing of things again, I had some horrible gastro virus thing come along and

“pre-season” week 3 day 1

so yesterday was an epic fail, from the perspective of journaling at least… just so much going on with work, by the time I had eaten dinner last night, I was ready for bed! the day itself was fine; I kept up my walking regime, food was fine (hard not to be, I am on

“pre-season” week 2 review

so we are now 2 weeks in and things are really starting to fall into place, and issues making themselves abundantly clear. weekend journaling and water intake – these are the issues that need addressing. the problem really is the way things are structured differently from week days. this actually is likely to be a problem
