So far so good.
I'm on my fifth week of training with Purple Patch Fitness and so far so good. I can feel my body remembering what it used to do and I'm improving each week. Of course I didn't come into this schedule completely out of shape but I certainly wasn't doing this kind of intensity or volume. I definitely found some muscles that had been hibernating!
I have to say though, it feels really good to be getting back into race shape. I've given (willingly) so much of my body to other things these last years (two babies, breastfeeding, hip surgery & recovery) that it's nice to focus a bit on me these days.
I was admittedly pretty tired this week as the training was starting to catch up with me but reminded myself that rest days can be equally important. It was clear to me that I needed to back off for a day or two and let my body absorb all the hard work that I have done. I'm glad I did as I'm feeling rested and ready to go back at it tomorrow!
