Having done nothing more energetic than a one hour swim with Leiws, Ali and I decided to put our tent up in preparation for camping at Windermere next week. When we'd finished, though it was hardly a complex or physical task, I had to sit down. I simply had no energy left.
Having dropped Ali back home, I promptly put myself straight to bed (even though the sun was out - which is always a clear sign of a problem!).
This morning my body feels as if I was a participant in yesterdays Aviva Premiership final. I ache absolutely everywhere.
In a way, I like to think this was building up, and was the cause for all my poor performance last week. All I know for certain is that I have my 6 hour qualifier on Friday, and I simply have to be ready for that somehow. I guess, whether I like it or not, I'll now have to rest all week. I simply have no strength whatsoever.
