Last week the wheels came off the training plan.
This past weekend, I installed some spares and revved the engine.
Thank goodness for running friends. Mary, Amy and I went out early Saturday morning and I was able to crank out 12 miles. Somehow, those 12 felt way harder than the 16 I did the prior weekend.
This week, I hope to have a lighter week work-wise and sick-kid wise. My husband’s back is much better and he’s now useful to me (Kidding! Luv u lots, Dan.) I’ve reached 50% of my fundraising goal (!), I have each run this week planned out with no question marks. On par for this week:
- 4 miles at the track with 400m repeats
- 5 miles + 5 strides
- 6 “easy” miles
- 18 miles for the long
After last weekend’s 12 miles, I had a good soaking the toes session:
and I realized that one bad week does not tank the plan. There will always be a better run in the future.
