"Sport nutritionists agree that rapid loss of body mass compromises the body’s ability to repair itself during intense training. Rapid reduction in body mass occurs as a result of fluid and/or substrate loss, both of which affect recovery and performance. An acute body mass loss of 2% or greater can adversely affect cognitive and physical performance."
Still feel like i should stick it out at this weight for now...

Energy levels weren't solved overnight, resulting in the least successful long-run in recent memory.
Had intentions of doing about 30k, 20k at MRP, but quickly realised there was no way i was putting any effort into this one. Got to the bay and decided to skip the lap, but still ended up stopping and walking in several sections, then skipped the blackwattle lap as well. In the end did half the distance intended at about half the speed. Max HR 135!
Not sure the cause. Haven't been eating or sleeping too bad, haven't been drinking too much or training too much. Maybe the mugginess got to me, maybe it was because i tried listening to music while running... maybe a bit of sickness creeping in, maybe its from weight loss, or the body trying to recover from the crash.
Either way, gonna have a quiet weekend and see if i can get a quality long session in early next week. Don't think it's anything to worry about
