What a disaster :D. Tuesday to Thursday I was in Paris on a work trip; things got pretty funky at work and it was easily my busiest week for the last 2 years. Result: hardly any time for running. At first I thought it was a good thing because I seriously needed to get some rest and I would never do that properly if not forced by circumstances.

But, since it was such an easy week, I decided to use this opportunity and run 10K on Sunday. The weird thing is that I didn't feel rested at all on Sunday. Actually my legs felt heavy as hell. Am I that over-trained? Anyhow, the race was a complete disaster :D. Now I have a dilemma whether to run the Beach challenge this Saturday in Den Haag. 5K or 10K? We'll see how I feel...
