My night time bed reading is Fast After 50 by Joe Friel. Joe has a whole chapter on Rest and Recovery. Since all my triathlete and running friends that I train together are 10+ years younger than me. I find it funny they think I can do their workouts. I know I am not a super woman or an elite but they think I am. I kinda laugh but then I start thinking I am their age. I know I need to listen to my body more but I keep thinking of the numbers for my week’s training . Yesterday, I pushed through my swim after being sick. Today, I said no to the numbers and turned around at 1/2 mile to go home. I know it will help me for my race on Thursday night.
This book has really opened my eyes and made me listen to my body.
