Just as in life, there are days during a training plan that you just have to readjust the schedule. My six-week plan calls for an off day or cross training day on Thursdays with my long run day set for Fridays. However, since I’m going out of town tonight for a girls’ beach weekend I decided I would wake up early to get my six miles in early.
Well I did not wake up quite as early as I wanted and at 6:45 am it was already a stifling 80 degrees outside. My legs were still heavy from Tuesday’s run and yesterday’s yoga routine that I did to help stretch out the kinks.
I made it to five miles this morning which is just fine. I’ll be ready to take on the weekend and I’ll justify the one mile I skipped today by tacking on an additional mile this weekend (making for three miles instead of two.). As long as I get my thirteen miles in for this week I’ll be a happy camper.
