AM: 1.5 WU  7x1100m hill circuit  2 mile CD + Standard core routine

PM: 35 min pool run.  I started fast but became very tired/weak for some reason so I cut it short.  I think I didn't eat enough throughout the day yesterday.  I was hungry most of the day and went home after the pool and ate a boatload until I was full.  I then went to bed at 8:45 and didn't wake up until 6:30....very tired indeed!  I feel better this morning (Wednesday) though.
