December 14-18, 2009
The last few weeks of Couch 25K were grueling. I felt very fatigued. My body was starting to shut down. On my running days and the next day I was longing for lengthy naps.
After reading Galloways' Book on Running I decided to follow some of his suggestions. Firstly, I decreased my running by 30%. Secondly, I decided to run intervals as he suggests for the older novice runner from age 40-60. I've also increased by water intake up from 64 oz. per day. Thirdly, I started running 3:1 run/walk intervals. I felt much more energized after decreasing my total mileage this week from 6 miles to 4 miles.
