MONDAY.......SPRING WITH A PINCH OF WINTER
After Sunday's 10K I managed to get the post race refuelling totally wrong. We opted for just a snack followed by a 2 mile walk late afternoon so by 7.30 I was getting quite "hyper" with hardly enough energy inside me to tackle my evening meal. Am I alone in ignoring the simple advice to refuel as soon as possible after hard efforts, on occasions? Then as so often happens I have a very restless, sleepless night as I rerun the race and the day's events. Am I alone in not sleeping well AFTER races? Or is it because I don't get out much and find all the excitement a bit overpowering!
For Monday's recovery run we drove from Troutbeck towards Lake Windermere for a flat easy jog hoping the magnificent views would take the mind off the aches and pains of the previous day's racing.
