9 easy -- cat hospital loop
no workout today -- i started out with a 200m semi-dash and then bailed. i'm still feeling tight and a bit unrecovered from sunday, and i'm planning to race again on saturday, so i think it's a good week to cool it.
the fatigue is starting to accumulate, and the getting-back-into-shape honeymoon period seems to have come to an end. i expected this was coming, and now i have to work through the fatigue intelligently, be patient, then keep building with a long-term perspective.
the best tool i have to use at this point is experience. i know how to mess things up more than i know how to do things right, but the fact that i know that i know how to mess things up means i can hopefully avoid a lot of the pitfalls that have swallowed me up in the past.
it's important to eat and sleep, you shouldn't run on a stress fracture, running fast in training is important, running slow in training is important, my nose requires sunscreen
