This evening I had a planned speed session (4 x 1600m) which I was very much looking forward t0 , but due to lack of sleep I will have cancel. If you catch yourself dosing off on the train from work this is a clear indication that you need rest. This is exactly what I’m planning on getting. The fact that I have an Aquathlon on Saturday reaffirms my need for recovery. I slept for about 5- 1/2 hours last night. Way too little. I was up late watching Stage 5 of tour de france instead of catching zzzzz for my early morning swim. This was a tough workout and definitely contributed to my exhaustion.
I will rest tonight, alter my workout tomorrow from a swim to a moderate run around Astoria Park and gear up for Saturday’s race.
