With my renewed focus, I've been working hard on getting the runs done and getting them done right according to plan. To start the flow, I got up at 4.30am on Tuesday morning and got my 1hr15 run in. I'm sure that I was asleep on my feet for the first 45min - I was rough, stiff and ended up rather achy. I only really felt good during the last 15min, just as I noticed the first bits of twilight in the eastern sky.
I tried to do the same today for my next 1h15 run, but I just couldn't do it. 4.30am came and went while I slept as if I were dead to the world. So I'm feeling pretty good this morning! And with a clear, rested head, I've got a plan to recover the run and still keep the load in the legs for tomorrow's 1hr run - "Bending Crankarms." I'll do this video tonight and feel it in tomorrow's run.
As for Friday's 1h15 run, well, we'll see where I can fit that in. We'll see what wins that morning...when morning comes. :D
