A Readjustment Period

In the past few days of higher mileage/more intensity, I’ve been reminded how my body responds to endurance training. As though I could have forgotten.

I’m hungry all the time.

I go back and forth between jumping out of bed to run and hitting snooze five times.

Seriously. Right after my long run yesterday, I went to brunch with a group of D.C. food bloggers. I didn’t eat  until I was full, but later in the afternoon I was inhaling everything in sight. I even had to go down to 7-11 at 10pm because I was craving chocolate and figured it would be better to indulge the craving than ignore it.

And I was fully planning to wake up early and work out this morning, but when it came time to get moving, an extra hour of sleep sounded way better.

[To be fair, I did a 20-min yoga session in my room.]

Then I have days where I’m so antsy to work out that I can’t wait for my alarm to sound. I’m not going to have much of a choice but to train — and not skip workouts — once IM training gets rolling, so good to go through this readjustment now after a pretty lazy off-season.

This is going to take some getting used to.
