OK, I was yesterday. That race totally killed me. I spend the whole afternoon yesterday sitting on my butt because I could not move. My legs were actually cramping 5 hours after the race and I took an ice bath, which I NEVER do because it is huge waste of drinkning water.
But then I have slept ofr 10 hours and I am like new again. Well, almost.
I did an elliptical workout. 10min w/up, 4x4min hard with 2min easy rest, 10min c/d. It was harder than last time. I got my HR to 165-175 highest, could not get it higher. I guess that I was still muscularly tired. That's no surprise though.
I do not know how I feel about ITB. It is acting very weirdly! I will probably give it another week. Although I have a race to run in 3 weeks. Or at least I am signed up for it:(
And my Achilles or something in that area started to act up. I think that it started on Friday already though but I did not pay attention to it. I do not know whether it is fins or elliptical and then that race yesterday probably irritated it even more. So I am icing it.
Then did a swim workout. Looooong swim, 3100 meters. That's a lot. For me. With some steady long intervals and I think that I am getting better at those! Woo-hoo.
Ok, I am going to bed now. I am tired.
