Tired with Four Days to Go
Think that I’m back under -100 TSB. Feeling about as smoked as when I arrived at Turangi on the North Island.
More things that happen with the big training:
Fatigue Intoxication – a mixture of low blood sugar and endorphin overload. Has me feeling tired, but giddy.
Slurred speech – similar to the above but likely due to glycogen depletion. Didn’t eat enough on today’s ride – 4,233kj and I had three bottles High-5 sports drink, one banana, small piece carrot cake, mocha-latte and two chicken wraps. Was fine during exercise but hit a wall of fatigue post-ride and was slurring my speech (and staggering a bit).
We had a good swim this morning (33m outdoor pool). Cold so we wore wetsuits.
Used the Monsy 100s pattern:
Run was easy today – 2x2K to/from the pool. We have a big hill run scheduled for tomorrow morning. Godley Head loop, one of my favorites.
Need to get in bed and rest up now.
Have a lot of stuff in my head (from riding without music all day) but that will have to wait.
No changes in the overall classifications for the jersey leaders but I am TWO days behind on points! Need to get a window where I can catch up.
