After the 45 mile ride with Rich, I have to say I felt pretty exhausted in the following 48-72 hours. If the Marathon hadnt finished me off, the bike ride pretty much did.
Thankfully, I had Izzy with me from Wednesday through to Saturday, so my first chance of any sort of work out was going to be Saturday evening.
After dropping Izzy home, it was a case of running a "gentle" 10k, although the HR on my Garmin suggested otherwise.
Then I hit the road again on Monday evening, within 10 minutes of being in the front door from work...
Into the Gym and on the treadmill, my HR was still much higher than usual.
Tuesday off. Back to the Gym on Wednesday for my first training session with Chandra for a good three or four months. My HR was still higher than it really should have been on the short two mile run to the Gym.
Another day and a half of recovery with Izzy again gave me a rest so I took her over Danson Park on Friday morning and I have to say I felt much better.
