My next half marathon is quickly approaching . . . and I can tell that I'm getting sick.
While not ideal, it does leave me with enough time to recover if I tweak my training a bit. Instead of the 38 miles I originally planned for this week, I'll dial back to 25 miles and not do any doubles. While it sucks having to go off plan, I know it's the right thing to do if I want to race my best.
Here's what this week's training includes:
Afternoon: 5 mile easy run + Strides
Afternoon: 7 mile combo run (1 mile warm up, 2 miles @ half marathon tempo pace, 2x800 meters, 4x400 meters, 1 mile cool down)
Afternoon: 3 mile fun run @ Performance Running Outfitters
Afternoon: Boot Camp Class, 3 mile run including hill repeats
Morning: 7 mile tempo run
