I moaned. A lot.
|So. Much. Food.|
I only had to do a 12 miler and a 5 miler this weekend which felt nice and short but not at all easy. My legs felt achy and tired and I wasn't able to knock out more than a mile at marathon pace. It was disappointing but I accepted the fact that I am worn out and need to taper.
They were giving B12 shots at the gym on Saturday so I took advantage and had them shoot me in the butt. I was hoping to feel a burst of energy over the weekend but instead I continued to feel kind of lethargic and exhausted. It's probably the anemia which I can't get under control. I wish they also did iron infusions at the gym. That would be divine!
My Week in Workouts:
Monday: Rest Day
Tuesday: 5 miles
Wednesday: 7 miles
Thursday: Spin Class (60 minutes)
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: 12 miles
Sunday: 4.5 miles
Yep, two full rest days again this week. This wasn't planned but it just made sense on Friday with the way things played out at the DMV and Brittany's folks getting into town so I let myself slide. I'm actually glad I did because my legs were tired enough on Saturday.
Any other anemic people out there?
What works best for you?
This is something I am constantly battling with and nothing seems to help.
