Notes: Woke up early today after about 7.5 hours sleep. Grabbed a few grapes, did some light stretching and headed out the door for my run. Worked a bit technique during my warm up and had some good technique thoughts throughout the run. Run felt very good today. Was able to hold a solid tempo and did feel too fatigued in my hamstrings or lower back. Heart rate didn't go crazy like it has during the past few met-cons.

Analyzing my training over the past few weeks and how I have felt that past few testers, I may be in a state of overreaching. I have never had a problem with my heart rate holding me back during workouts but during the few last week (feeling like my heart was going to explode) I think I am feeling the accumulative effects of training/testing. It's something you have to except because for adaptation to occur, you almost have to get worse before you get better. I know that once I take some time for my body to recover, I will be in peak form. With that being said, to make the most out of my training sessions I have to be diligent about my sleep, CONTINUE TO INCREASE CARBOHYDRATES, and use recovery techniques like massage, ART, and stretching.
