So this year has been an intense year all round. Work, family, running, friends... you name it, they were all ramped up in intensity this year.
- I'm tired repeatedly during "standard runs" - I'm not talking about the occasional off day, but rather the repeated, every run kind of tired. It isn't always reflected in my pace but it just feels harder.
- My body feels "soft" - this is weird to describe but when I get physically exhausted, I don't stand as tall, my core doesn't engage as well, and I tend to be more "floppy" or lop-sided when I run. Tired running=bad posture running=no bueno
- Don't get that good post-run feeling - Usually I come back from a run feeling focused and invigorated but when I'm starting to burnout, I just feel done. I don't feel peppy or like a rockstar, I'm just done running.
After the Columbus Marathon, I have the rare unicorn of a vacation, going to WDW with NO RACES! Yep, you read that right, I will just be there to eat, drink, play, eat, take character photos, ride rides, eat, drink, and oh did I mention eating and drinking, it is Food and Wine time you know!
