Blah and droopy....

So I am new to periodization training. I am at the end of my first cycle. two hard weeks, one easy week. This is my easy week. I thought I would be like woo hoo !!! easy week, but I am feeling sort of blah and droopy.

Is that normal?


big sigh...ho hum.....

A little blah and droopy is normal. I usually feel like I'm stiffer from doing less. Part of the blah is that you're not getting your typical dose of endorphins. I remedy this by doing very short, intense intervals during my light workouts. For example - 20 sec sprint every 2 to 3 min for a total of 5 reps. I won't do another sprint until I feel totally recovered from the first and if you keep em short, they don't count as excessively raising your heartrate, so technically you're still recovering.
