Thrashed

Yeah my legs are thrashed. After running my first 20 miler, I am thrashed . It mostly didnt stop me from anything though.

Monday-recovery run 3 miles
Tuesday-Swim. 500 meter time trial. 12:30. Now at first glance not that fast. But if you consider that was my first swim SINCE silverman in Nov. NOT ONE SWIM. My goal pace for silver man was 6 min per 250 yards. SO I was pumped. Not just that but I felt very very strong too. Looking forward to spending more time there. I also played softball as league started tonight. Felt very strong.
Wednesday-Run 6 miles. Sore and slow. Legs were not responding to my brain. It was like mud.
Thursday/Friday-Rest.
Saturday-Softball tournament. 7 games and as the day went on I felt more and more thrashed. My legs at the end were absolutely DONE. Today I felt so dam sore. So I skipped running. Recover again then another 20 miler in a week or so. Taper for the big race March 21. LA MARATHON bring it on.

“I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.”
Anthony Robbins

oh yeah, I like that.

Yeah the day o' softball probably didn't help. I haven't found any other activity that can compare to the feeling of fatigue after pounding the pavement for 20 miles. Hope you are starting to feel better this week.

My friend is running the LA marathon too and has one long run left. And yes, the 20 milers take some recuperating time. It doesn't seem to slow you down though with all the other training and softball too.
