Was expecting/hoping to see some improvement, but feel about the same so not gonna run. No rush, couple chill weeks post JK then hopefully build back through May/June for selection races in July (and a summer of other fun things). Wouldn't want to derail exams either.
Bailing from Lakes, little bit worried about the heavy-headedness that's lingering post-JK, has felt about the same all week. Plus Blakeholme is usually infested with ticks and even though the risk is small, Lymes rn would be incredibly sub-optimal. Probably just need a bit more rest to be frank (or rather, not to be Frank ;) ).
Note (rest day)
Feeling better, less tired generally, just this little headache which I'm keen to shift asap. Picked up some iron pills in case that's part of the problem, which is probably unlikely but 14mg a day on top of my usual diet shouldn't harm (?)

Crags plus 4 x 20s hill strides. Legs still feeling terrible on the climb, even with a tailwind, although they felt ok on the strides and better afterwards. Still tired in the head too, not sure at what point it becomes concerning. Took a covid test yesterday which was negative, and am sleeping decently and eating loads. Plan on going to the Lakes races this weekend purely for the enjoyment but may take Sunday easy if I still feel tired tomorrow.
APO seat lap with Todge and Finn. Tired all day again, maybe even more than yesterday, so came home from the library at 2:30 and had a lie down before this. Run was nice and slow though and felt better by the end.

JK Relay, 2nd leg. Team 3rd.
Set out 2mins down on OD but with Shminty close behind. Kept it clean through the woods but Shminty was closing and came past on the long leg. Just a cross country race til the end and I slowly got dropped, about 30s down in the end (less than the results say as I missed the finish punch first time round). Spud was solid as ever and finished 3rd. Looking forward to hopefully another battle at Scottish Relays.
