8 x 400m Repeats
2 Races That I bailed out of
This week was a coach-imposed down week. After struggling through mini-workouts last week, it was time to press the brakes and back off a bit from training. My body was sending every single signal that it needed a break, so I did just that. I also decided to back out of my one of my favorite races in North Carolina - the Beat the Heat 5k. It was a tough decision, but I knew I wasn't physically or mentally prepared to dig deep and hurt really hard to compete at my highest level.
This week I basically just ran easy run after attempting a 8 x 400m workout. It just was too much effort to do anything more than get in 60 minutes of running. Ultimately, this is definitely the right decision because I don't want to push the limits so much that I end up with the always dreaded Over Training Syndrome.
