Really pathetic this morning. I was very ambitious when I set out about keeping my pace below 11 mm, but soon shut off my Garmin in frustration. Absolutely no energy at all. Needed a pb, so stopped at the gym and did 1.5 miles on the treadmill. I was pouring sweat at 4-4.5 mph and couldn't figure it out. It felt like when my anemia is out of control.
Running home I was pondering if I was sick or anemic or what. Mentally I was thinking, "My iron levels were plenty high on Saturday afternoon when I donated blood..." Then it clicked, I donated blood on Saturday afternoon, so probably am anemic right now.
I'll give myself a few more days to recover before worrying about pace again.
PM - ran 1.5 miles on the treadmill as a warmup. My trainer kicked my legs with lots of balance training and a solid lower body workout.
