I have to show you all something weird. That is a snapshot of my long slow distance run today. My HR was all over the place and I was having a really hard time breathing. Air quality hasn't been great the past couple of weeks in Edmonton, but I think it was actually the warm temps and melting this week because I was wheezing pretty bad.
I actually took more rest days this week because my workouts have been really hard like I was hitting the wall with very little effort. It is frustrating! I am hoping it is just a low week and next week I will be back to normal. My friend suggested maybe I am fighting something because all I have wanted to do is sleep too.
I hope this week is better! I got a new cadence/speed sensor to motivate me on the trainer and downloaded a new program called Road Trainer. I will post on it tomorrow after I do my 8 minute test.
