I’m one week in to the second half of my training plan, and it was not a good week.
I started things off by getting in my 10 mile run on Sunday, with an average pace of 14:23. That was my longest distance run of the training so far, and my longest run in a couple years. But I was hoping to have a little better pace than that.
Then I caught a bug. I wasn’t feeling too hot on Tuesday, but I tried to run anyways. I got a mile into it before I had to quit. Because of this, I didn’t run Wednesday or Thursday either.
I didn’t have time to run on Friday, and yesterday I was pretty busy all day too, so I didn’t get any workout in. Essentially, I started the week big, and then just fell on my face. Ugh.
You’ll have weeks like this.
So that brings me today. I’m going to try and run 11 miles and get this training moving forward again.
