PM- Supposed to be a big workout today. Ended up with crap. I knew I was in trouble within the first half mile- I was lightheaded and my feet/legs felt like they were made of lead. I still tried- 3 miles warmup, 1 mile tinman tempo (kind of). Then met Cody and Paul at LHS track. I was going to do 8x1000m at 5:30-5:35 pace, so my repeats needed to be 3:26-3:30. First one was 3:36 and felt very hard. Second one was 3:50 (6:08 pace). I was done. Tired, pooped, felt crappy. I pulled the plug on the workout. Didn't even have the energy to jog much around the track while Paul and Cody finished. We cooled down just under 5 miles together. Total distance was just under 11 miles for me, 1:22:30.
Not sure why I felt so bad- I was at a conference today so ate a big, not too great lunch at noon rather than my very healthy snacking all day. 7 hours of sleep last night, which is good for me. Whatever the reason, there was no point in forcing the workout. I'll try to get a decent tempo run in tomorrow.
