Recovery Week

After the Nerang State Forrest 50k I felt a lot better than expected. Apart from the odd black toe nail and aching hip joints I pulled up quite well, in fact I managed to drag myself to altitude training the next morning. This week was planned to be a recovery week, this involved a road run on Tuesday and Thursday and yoga on Monday and Wednesday.

I cruised through recovery week with the thought that maybe I hadn't pushed hard enough in the race, it all felt like it should have been harder. Or maybe I was expecting to drag myself over the finish line and not be able to walk for the next week.

This next week my program is set increase in distance and intensity, and coming out of this 50k hurdle feeling confident I am excited to get training again.
