Recovery and Over Training
This week I had a super hilly 16 mile long run, including the biggest hill in Austin called Ladera Norte. The "Run From Hell" is aptly named. Through this, I feel like I might be overtraining a bit. I'm exhausted and sore. I don't feel like I'm recovering as I should. I took a couple of days off and caught up on rest. It's made a HUGE difference. I got to where I neither physically nor mentally could get into my workouts. It was a struggle to start, really hard to get through the workout, and didn't feel like I was getting fully back to square one after the workout. I'm feeling better now and will continue to keep an eye on this. I need to learn to listen to my body.
