That was a rough one, very high HR, no energy

    Wow, that's odd. Sleeping well lately? BTW, weren't you going to the track today?

    The body is a weird thing, eh?

    To me, this makes sense, given the time you took off. One would expect a few good workouts, followed by some rocky ones once your lack of fitness shines through. I would not be surprised to see you hit new fitness highs, in somewhat short order, once you pull through the valley and your energy pathways start to open up again.

    5 to 6 hours sleep last 4 days definitely was part of it. On Monday I decided to cut out all candy, cookies, sodas, processed food, etc because I have been eating crap. Went a bit overboard with mostly veggies and not enough calories intake. Before this run I hadn't really eaten much which normally is fine but now It hit me.
    Going to add more calories back in, increase weekly miles a bit, then aerobic pace should improve again.

    @david, that was the plan, decided to run a short local one instead

    @greg, yes and no, kinda saw this one coming, because the run started off tired and slightly hungry haha

    Agree Stone, matter of getting over this part. New highs not in near term because I run 50-70% less miles due to limited time, but that's ok. Have an epic weekend!

    How's the LA Marathon looking? You going to get some miles in? Or just jog it anyway?

    I am running again after 3 months of too much work and stress. It's hard but the residual fitness is still there. Hope coming back is not too rough.

    For LAM I'd be stoked to run it 2:59:59, feeling very out of shape so looking to get a few longer runs in. A lot of friends are running it, so should be a fun one. You running it Greg?

    Not running LA Marathon. Considering Mountains to Breach at the end of May. A February marathon would mess with any other racing too much for me.

    It's the sleep Floris !
