I haven&#39;t done the hard core training for this season yet, so part of the issue is&nbsp;undertraining and low mileage. &nbsp;I&#39;ve popped my mileage up to 85-90 and I&#39;m actually feeling better than I did at 65. &nbsp;</p> <p>2.) Mentally I was way too wound up for those two days and by the time the final came around I felt pretty exhausted. &nbsp;I ran tough but I&#39;ve got to relax before my races because I get way too amped for prelims. &nbsp;</p> <p>3.) I noticed in my training logs the word &quot;tired&quot; kept coming up- I think this is the biggest issue. &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;a.) I really need to push the academics hard on the weekends and early in the day so I can get to bed on time and get my head some time to rest. &nbsp;If this is an academic issue, I&#39;ve got to find a way to keep the physics on the dl for the next 6 weeks. &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp; &nbsp; b.) Hydration and nutrition- I checked with our dietician and I&#39;m too lean. &nbsp;Some of the muscle will naturally slough off as mileage goes up but I&#39;ve got to push calories so my body can have some fat do its thing. &nbsp;I also need to hydrate better in the week- I bonked a workout last week because I was dehydrated. &nbsp;</p> <p>4.) Into You&nbsp;is a SWEET song. &nbsp;I should listen to Ariana more. &nbsp;</p> Sun, 02 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Apr 01, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-04-01-2017.html Sat, 01 Apr 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 31, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-31-2017.html Fri, 31 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 30, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-30-2017.html Thu, 30 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Mar 29, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-29-2017.html Wed, 29 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 28, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-28-2017.html Tue, 28 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Mar 27, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-27-2017.html Mon, 27 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Sun, Mar 26, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-26-2017.html Sun, 26 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Mar 25, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-25-2017.html Sat, 25 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 24, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-24-2017.html Fri, 24 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 23, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-23-2017.html Thu, 23 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Mar 22, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-22-2017.html Wed, 22 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 21, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-21-2017.html Tue, 21 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Mar 20, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-20-2017.html <p>AM: LT test</p> <p>PM: 6 miles easy</p> Mon, 20 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Sun, Mar 19, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-19-2017.html Sun, 19 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Mar 18, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-18-2017.html Sat, 18 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 17, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-17-2017.html Fri, 17 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 16, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-16-2017.html Thu, 16 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Mar 15, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-15-2017.html Wed, 15 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 14, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-14-2017.html Tue, 14 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Mar 13, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-13-2017.html Mon, 13 Mar 2017 06:00:00 Sun, Mar 12, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-12-2017.html Sun, 12 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Mar 11, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-11-2017.html Sat, 11 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Mar 10, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-10-2017.html Fri, 10 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Mar 09, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-09-2017.html Thu, 09 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Wed, Mar 08, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-08-2017.html Wed, 08 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Tue, Mar 07, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-07-2017.html Tue, 07 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Mar 06, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-06-2017.html Mon, 06 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Sun, Mar 05, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-05-2017.html Sun, 05 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Mar 04, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-04-2017.html Sat, 04 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Mar 03, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-03-2017.html Fri, 03 Mar 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Mar 02, 2017 http://ricksgiving.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-02-2017.html Thu, 02 Mar 2017 07:00:00
