I have really been pushing of late and yesterday decided that the best thing yesterday morning was to take a REST DAY. There is no doubt that you have to rest to get better performances. When I woke up the legs just felt heavy so I using mental strength more than anything, I rested. Sometimes the frustration of not working out is worse than the aches and pains of pushing myself.
Today, was a new day after signing up at the Gym last night I bounded down there at 6am only to find that it was not open due to a Public Holiday for the Elections here. If I was blonde I would have an excuse. So back home and out onto the road.
I have had the feeling that in the last few months I had been doing junk km's , and so I have been refocusing on doing track, Hills and of course the weekly long. Thus I headed to the Hills Circuit which is a nice warm up of two km's, before turning onto the Hill , again I decided on only doing four repeats , the transition into this hill training has to be done gradually , not wanting to suffer any injuries
Today the efforts of shortening my pace seems to be working well, I felt really strong and the splits today reflected many things including the cross training regime
