Not So Fresh LegsPosted: September 4, 2011
Ok so yesterday morning’s 5k race went alright considering I was running on Fatigued Legs…a consequence of no rest day! I finished strongly in 4th place and 3rd for my Age Division 18-29 🙂 I guess I can’t ask for more!
But I did read an article that outlined the importance of simulating race conditions ie; learning how to push on without fresh legs. Training on fatigued legs isn’t so bad I suppose it helps in the long run when you have back to back races!?
Oh and it was Father’s Day yesterday here in Australia! We treated my dad to a French style Breakfast which consisted of Croissants & Brioche 🙂 The rest of my day was spent with my mum’s side of the family for lunch, which went well into the evening. The weekend was great but it went by so quickly 😦
I usually post my workout for the week today, but I have a Physio appointment tomorrow. So I will have to wait to see what I can and can’t do for the next 2 weeks. By the looks of it I have a bad case of runners knee!
Here is some Food Porn from today:
This morning I went for a 5k slow jog and it was fairly painful to run on. So this afternoon I substituted my usual Short Sprint Training with 45mins on the Stationary Bike.
Hope Everyone Has A Lovely Week 🙂
