How were your workouts last week? Mine were much better than the previous two weeks. The week after the Run 4 Luvv half marathon was a definite recovery week. The week after that was just, well, blah. I think this was due to some burnout plus some post-race blues and I just didn’t have motivation.
Have you ever felt the post-race blues? You training is on point and the race goes well and then what? Well last week I got back on track and although my runs were slower than my peak weeks, it’s okay.

This was a hilly long run workout which is why it was much slower. I had run part of the route a little over a year ago during a Christmas race. We had planned for 10 miles and this was what I mapped out beforehand. Check out that elevation at the bottom!
