Switching Days


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.

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
