Two days on, two off

Saturday- 11.5 mile run, good pace, calves cramped with 2 miles to go, was too cold to stop and stretch, big mistake.
Sunday- 3 mile recovery run.
Monday- Needed a day off
Tuesday- Tried to run, felt like crap in general...legs hurt, headache, etc. Going to try to workout tomorrow.
I think I need to take a look at my diet. Salads aren't working for lunch anymore, I think I need more food, maybe rice/veggies/chicken. There always comes a point in training (for whatever long distance thing I'm training for) where my body just does this, it needs more calories. I have felt pretty empty for the last few days and have had this headache for a week now. I don't think it could be overtraining because I backed off on the spin classes the last two weeks. Whatever it is, it needs to go away SOON because one day off was fine, but today is just making me angry. I don't even want to go to the pool to swim...and I NEED a swim too if I'm going to sign up for the Richmond meet. UGH!
Thanks for listening!
