I normally run in the morning, before breakfast, and find quite a lot of my morning is wiped out through recovery. Sometimes I will get in the bath and stay there a long time, on other ocassions I have curled up with a book. I am lucky in that I am semi retired and can usually arrange work and commitments to allow a decent recovery time on the weekdays when I run.
This morning, I needed to work. I was scheduled to do W6R3. I got up at 6am, went out before it got light, did the run ok, came home, showered and had breakfast, and should have been ready to start work by 8:30. But that nagging little voice said have a little lie down first and before I knew it, it was 10am. I have a block of work on a client site coming up, where I won't be able to give in to the temptation to rest up.
How do others deal with this? Will it go away when my body is more used to running?
