ARE YOU MEN­TALLY FA­TIGUED?

Runner's World (UK) - - Training -

Sadly, there is no sim­ple test that can def­i­nitely say your brain is too tired for a long work­out be­cause, well, ev­ery brain is dif­fer­ent. But Fifer says you should keep an eye out for a drop in mo­ti­va­tion – es­pe­cially if that lack of get- up-and- go doesn’t van­ish once you start sweat­ing. ‘ If you can’t get into a ses­sion, that in­di­cates you may need to abort the run and try some­thing dif­fer­ent,’ she ex­plains. Lis­ten to your per­ceived ef­fort level that day and adapt ac­cord­ingly – mix up your train­ing sched­ule and speed if you need to. It’s still a work­out, af­ter all.
