I just had to grind through it and I did but it was not close to easy. times were decent though, and that was a surprise. You never lose much with a week or so off, just the cream off the top but the base is still there.Luckily it was a cool morning
It's all in the mind; training, that is. You are always training the mind- to be stronger or to be weaker. The body is very much secondary. It's the mind that always gives out first.Or, pulls you through. I kept that in mind when I was noticing every step and every lap and not feeling the most energy. Just had to focus, focus focus.
No real soreness or stiffness from yesterday but the looseness in the legs wasn't there and halfway through they started to feel heavy. Slog on.
