Still on Empty

Still running on empty. After a triple threat Tuesday (3,000 swim and 5-mile run, followed later in the day by a 20-mile bike) I am feeling thoroughly depleted. Add to it not getting enough sleep for several nights in a row, not fueling adequately yesterday, and a core/strength workout on Monday that still has all my muscles aching, and I am just done.

I honored this feeling today by getting out of the pool after only 1500; 500 of which was an interval set that nearly did me in. Swim workout #9 is posted below.
