I've decided to ban myself from saying I'm slow, although "I felt slow" is fine. I think for me speed is the same as happiness, in that I will never think I fast if I say I will be fast when I get a certain time. I never thought I was quick at swimming or running. I have a feeling that unless I became an Olympian or something similar I would always think I'm slow. I'm hoping that if every time I catch myself saying/writing it I deal with the thought then tell myself I'm fast, then maybe one day ill start to believe it. That way it will become more about getting faster, rather than getting less bad.

Felt stronger at the start but weaker at the end than previous rides. Didn't sleep that well.

Muscles had recovered from the last run so time for another. Felt so much easier, more energy and muscles coping much better. :) Was planning on leaving running (apart from to/from gym) till I could swim for an hour, but maybe I will start sooner. Sleep was disrupted.
Think I've been in a mini crash since sunday, just very shallow (every day would have been a good day in Feb). Should have done less exercise but oh well - I wasn't getting post exertanial fatigue. Spent 2.5 hours meditating yesterday (normally aim for 1 hour) and feeling a tad stressed in the evening. A good thing cause energy is coming back. Feeling good today but going to o have a good rest day just to make sure.
Can hear blood flowing in my head when my heart beats. It used to just be in the evenings but could hear it a lot of today. Hoping it will go away when I get better...haven't looked into it but maybe heat makes it worse??

Bit further than intended. Feeling ok immediately after but may take a precautionary rest day tomorrow depending. Think it's going to be a while before running feels natural or doesn't feel like I'm running against a resistance. Main aim is to get to the point where I can run to gym, just so my legs get used to it again. Currently they always hurt after.
