This week I was just doing maintenance and trying to continue with active recovery in preparation for Wildflower on Saturday. The long course race there is one of the toughest and I wanted to make sure I was totally rested for it.
One of the hardest parts about race preparation for me is that when I rest or cut the workloads down significantly I really start to feel like crap. All this week I felt really lethargic and run down which totally tanks my my confidence and optimism. It was a big challenge to constantly be reminding myself that my fitness would be there on race morning. I tried to keep my head out of it as best I could and stick to my plan...but it was a tough week.
