Sunday was a much-needed rest day. It was a very nice day and I just focused on my one full recovery day. Unfortunately, I didn’t feel very recovered by the end of the day. When I went to bed, my legs felt like I had just finished a long workout or run. I woke up about 3 am and my legs were still very tired feeling, both my quads and calves. So I decided I’d better listen to my body and take another day. I tried to drink lots of water and take it easy as possible for a second day. By the end of the day my legs felt much better.
4: 40 am this morning and the alarm goes off. I feel good and go workout. It was a very good workout and I still feel like I continue to improve. It was tough but nice. Following my workout I tried a whey protein drink. I felt so much better all day than I normally do. I think I’m going to keep up with the whey protein after my workouts and runs along with plenty of water. I’m interested to see how it works out.
Tomorrow, I’ll workout and run. I’m planning on increasing my mileage from 3.1 to 3.5.
