~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wasn't feeling much like speed work after yesterday's workout and some mental fatigue. You need to be really dialed in mentally to go true AFAP. So glad it's the weekend. It has been a really rough week with Lil Fort. She has a soccer game today. Hoping to get her out of the house now for a run with Mr. Fort. Endorphins good!

    I'm starting to find the truth in this as I try to adapt. Sometimes I could be physically rested and charged (like following a day off from swimming and dryland with ample rest), but my reflexes can still feel dull and undercharged. This happens after a lot of AFAP stuff earlier in previous weeks. The nervous and musculoskeletal systems seem to not always be on the same schedule.

    Yes, neuro fatigue definitely operates differently. And then any life stress makes the mental part harder.
