This afternoon's run was nothing more than about figures. My banking background meant that if an amount could be made to mean something, then do it. The headline said that all I had to do today was run 6.1km to make 300km for May to make 10 months in a row when I ran over 300km for each month. Of course, just making 300km for May drags down the long term average and this week's average at 9.8km per run looks " very average". So much for figures.
It also shows I need a rest so the next 2 - 3 weeks will be almost "run free". If I get motivated and it's a nice day, and I have nothing else to do, I might venture out. Must also ring Maria to arrange a massage and get myself right for the rest of the year. I might also sleep in, tidy up the back yard, can't wash the car, but I will still ride the bike to work except on night shift finishing at midnight.
It will be an active recovery but not stressful,so I will know when it is time to return. By end of June there will be only 3 and a bit months before Brindabella Classic, that will require a change of training to accommodate the distance and downhill otherwise, the next week will be painful.
If I don't write often now for a while, I will probably be having an afternoon nap on the couch exhausted from doing nothing.
