This was a very off week for me! I got assumed food poisoning on Friday and had to move my Friday and Saturday runs over a day. It is such an out of control feeling when you are sick or injured and have to complete a run for a training plan. I completed my long run yesterday, on Sunday, and then also did my Monday run today. So, I’m a little wiped out!
Thankfully, I am in good shape to handle these adjustments here and there so I try not to let it bother me too much. Especially, when there is nothing I could do.
I was even a little tiresome on Wednesday’s run which looked like this:
1 mile slow
4 miles fast
1 mile slow
I think the run would feel a little easier if the the fast portion was 3 miles. However, 4 miles fast took some effort. Pretty sure none of the training runs are supposed to feel particularly easy. The 4 milers on Fridays, before the Saturday long run, are easy but I usually have dread looming over me for the long run! Plus, those Friday 4 milers are going to start adding miles as well in the coming weeks.
Well, that was a gloomy post, wasn’t it? For those of you Spring marathon training: are you starting to feel the extra miles wear you out a bit, yet?
Happy moving and have a great week!
