After a long rest

Budapest week 6 - Wednesday

Rate this Entry
Tuesday I was really tired and ended up going to bed before 7pm. I had a decent night of sleep but woke feeling even more sore and tired than when I went to bed. This tiredness carried into and throughout my workout. I knew I would hit a wall at some point but did expect it so soon after ramping up my training. This was probably the worst I have felt and performed in a couple years. My arms were heavy the whole workout. I just could not shake it! After practice I realized I did not eat dinner on Tuesday night and ate a small kind bar before practice so suspect that this contributed to the feeling.

The 400 free afap I was 4:05 and beat. This was the highlight of the workout. The 200s I was 1:59,2:01,2:05,2:05. The rest was ok but I just had that feeling of being whooped the whole workout. One of my team mates suggested I took up something more sedentary like bridge or dominoes. He said he had never heard me complain and moan so much!
