Foundation Program - Weeks 3 and 4 Report

Hello again! I got tied up with other stuff and realised just now that I have not posted my update on the Foundation Program for over 2 weeks now. Well, the good news is that I have just been lazy in updating this blog, but I am chugging along on the Foundation Program (I'm in Week 5 currently).

Weeks 3 and 4 went by pretty well. I felt a little bit of fatigue and my legs didn't feel so good after 3 days of Week 3.  I looked ahead at the Week 4 schedule and it had 2 Off Days. I decided to take a break of 1 day after Day 3 in Week 3 and used the extra off day in Week 4 to 'catch up'. I got back on track on the lost day and completed a 95' long run on Sunday (which is allocated to my long runs).  

I am not exactly sure what caused the little fatigue and bad legs, but might have just been some small bug. I felt fine after the 1 day break. I paid heed to Eric's sound advice and 'listened' to my body.
