Oh man I'm tired. I've been going through quite a bit of stress in the last month but good news is its all been resolved and there is nothing left to worry about. But now that i can relax, I'm left feeling like i could sleep for a week. Stress fatigue is just awful. It hits you like a wave and leaves you weak, exhausted and bone tired. Driving to the track i struggled to stay in my lane and stay awake. Its frightening as you cant just pull over on the motorway.
But any way ..I digress. Tonight i was in for 5 x 1km and i opted for the track. I felt very clunky during my warm up but eventually smoothed out. Kay decided she would do 3 x 1km and we started out together.
My first km was a struggle as i pushed my body to move....use glutes, push off, lengthen stride....the list is endless.
1st = 5:48
2nd = 5:42
3rd = 5:42
4th = 5:41
5th = 5:39
I am really happy with this. I got a little quicker with each one. Now to build up fitness. Eventually i felt smooth and everything flowed better. 6 weeks to go....scary stuff.
