are you targeting a new race? I see you're keeping the running up. Hope so!
I am not. Not sure what’s going on with me, but I was sick for a week a little after my marathon. I have been lifting a lot and haven’t been focusing on running much. Just when I was starting to try and piece some miles together, I played football and tweaked my knee.
Trying to start back up again. My Apple Watch alerted me yesterday that my resting HR this past week was abnormally high. It’s usually in the mid 40s and now it’s in the 50s/60s. My VO2Max continues to drop as well (53 after this morning’s run) Pretty sure that is the lowest it’s been in the past 3-4 years. My HR got up to 189 (my max) on my run today, and I felt it. They were running a 5K on my local route, so I got caught up in trying to show off.
I’ll never understand how this whole things works. Down to 13% body fat and haven’t had over 2-3 grams of sugar in a day since December. Yet, my running and fitness continues to drop. When I eat like crap and look like a fat guy with skinny arms and legs, my VO2Max is like 62 and I feel amazing out there.
