I have signed up for a 10K next month. I HAD been working out pretty regularly, however I have done nothing for over a week now. Today I tried to do some speed intervals on the treadmill, but I died on the second segment. I think that a good part of that is due to getting up on 5 hours of sleep, and consuming nothing from 6:30 am until after my failed 6 pm run. I just didn't have anything left.
Part of my problem is the last three shifts I have worked have been starting earlier each day, so I have been building a sleep deficit. I start later tomorrow though, so hopefully I can put a stop to it tonight.
Here's to hoping I can step it up a notch.
