So maybe this is TMI but we are endurance athletes and this is part of it, so whatever.
Anyway i was doing a vo2max workout this AM and nature called at the worst time. I had done three intervals but then had to take an 8 or 9 minute break vs. the prescribed 3 minute one.
Rather than continue the workout, i chose to bail on it, because i had returned to a sort of baseline so the last two intervals wouldn’t have the impact they were intended to have. Ideally i would have restarted or done at least an extra one but i just didn’t have time. Problem is, there’s now the possibility that i went hard enough today to not feel great tomorrow, but not hard enough to get a good overload.
So question is, do another hard workout later today, to just squeeze toothpaste out of the tube? Or rest, hit it hard tomorrow, and hope for the best recovery-wise?
