I was running with Fintan on Monday and it was a real struggle. Looked at the heart rate and it was 15 beats higher than normal. Took the decision to pull the pin and it was a slow jog home. Rested Tuesday and then did a light run on Wednesday (still no energy). Back into things on Thursday and finished the week strongly. Just a blip and nice to have a bit of a break I suppose.
