Easing Off This Week

After 313k in 3 weeks, my body was screaming ENOUGH at the end of my 28k run on Sunday. The last 6k were very slow and pushed my average pace out to 6:11 which was nearly a minute per km slower than my 24k run the day before where I felt like I was doing it easily.

I also pulled up quite sore, with some pain in my hip flexor, which took a couple of days to disappear. I still went out for an easy 10k on Monday, but took yesterday off, and will have an easier week than planned. Instead of 112k, I will drop back to about 95k, and ease the tempo a bit to give myself a rest.

The weather is also looking a bit nasty for the rest of the week, so it may even end up being less than that, with some time indoors on the treadmill.
