|My eyelashes are frozen together. No big deal, right?|
With that... here's what my training plan called for this week:
Monday: Run, 3 miles, easy
Tuesday: Cross train
Wednesday: Run, 3 miles, easy
Friday: Run, 30 minutes, easy
Saturday: Run, 4 miles, easy
And here's what actually happened:
Monday: Run, 3 miles @ 10:13/mi
Tuesday: Bike trainer for 45 minutes
Wednesday: Run, 3 miles @ 9:48/mi (not exactly easy but when I saw what pace I was running I thought I could run a 5K sub 30:00... I failed. By thirty-three freaking seconds. Oops.
Thursday: Bike, 27:00 (I accidentally cleared my settings when I stopped to help someone else use a bike) so I had to restart. Total distance was about 6.6 miles and after that I did some strength training.
Friday: Run, 30 minutes, 3.13 miles @ 10:23/mi
Saturday: Run, 4 miles @ 11:01/mi. This was a new route and was REALLY hilly and I ended up walking up a couple of the hills. I will do this route again but without walking.
Sunday: After eleven straight days of activity I definitely rested. Literally, I napped. It felt glorious.
How do you manage your training when the weather doesn't necessarily cooperate?
