Fellow forum members, once more I am going to ask you to step in to the breach and settle an arguement with Mrs Stanners from the Bridge.
i am currently trying to enjoy a well earned holiday from to 7 to 7 ( it is the new 9 to 5) and after my first race of the season last Sunday had grand plans of getting some serious training in before my next race on the 13th and a 10k race on the 20th. I took Monday as a rest day then went out on a 50k bike ride around the Peak District and since then I have felt like death with man flu.
Both me and the wifey know how grouchy I get when I don't train, so I have tried a couple of pool sessions since then but have really struggled on the high intensity interval sets and I can't even contemplate running at the moment.
It seems i am damned if I do and damned if i dont. Train but simply do junk sessions or rest up and get stressed about the missed sessions.
So folks, what do you recommend, feet up or head down?
