Ever have a run/workout that goes horribly wrong and you feel like utter poo?
Welcome to yesterday’s run for me.
46:49 @ 7:48 pace
Absolutely awful!! Pace was great, considering I felt like death and that I was going super slow. Ever experience those side cramps or sharp pains in your mid section that make it hard to breathe? :enter pain: It happened during my run. It was awful.
End result: cutting run to 6 miles instead of 7. Yes it’s one mile, and yes it’s a big deal.
Why such a big deal?
It’s going to be a bit hard to hit mileage this week.
Goal Mileage: 37 miles
Mileage so far: 11 miles
Miles scheduled for the rest of the week:
As you see that only puts me at 34.5 miles for the week. So this is what I think I’m going to do
This puts me at 36 which is close enough. We are supposed to end our last week of peak mileage (mine being at 40 miles) in about 2 weeks, so next week I want to hit 40 and then the week after hit 40 miles.
Which means I am giving up a rest day. For the next two weeks I won’t take a rest day. It will essentially still be rest, because it will be an easy three miler with a slog of 2 miles. But that day will help my daily mileage out a lot!
Q: Have you ever cut a run down?
I tend to do this a lot, but I make up for it with the other miles ran.
Q: Do you take rest days?
I usually ALWAYS have a rest day a week. Another reason I’m foregoing my off day and making it a really really easy day is because I will be racing starting next weekend and I don’t want to get stiff which I do when I take a day off.
