Messed Up Schedule

Ugh. I just fudged on my training run. Supposed to do 3 miles...3 miles! I figured I would do it on my treadmill and do a little speed work, but I crapped out at 2 miles. To be honest, my training schedule is about to get all out of whack for about two weeks. Ray and I go out of town next week. I have a 4 mile and then an 8 mile run on days we'll be gone. I'm going to take some running clothes and try to get the 4 miles done on a treadmill at the hotel, but I don't see the 8 mile run happening. If Ray was also a runner, I would have him come out with me at a park or something, but I won't go run by myself in a strange city. Eek. I'm supposed to do a 7 mile run this Saturday, but the weather is going to be soooo beautiful tomorrow (sunny and high of 47!) that I'm going to run it early - drive out to the area that has many hills. Maybe knowing I'm going to do a long run tomorrow messed with my run today.

I'm trying not to be so hard on myself about not following the schedule as written. I'll be back on schedule the first week of March, but I can't help but feel like I'm going to fall behind. Fall behind who? haha! I guess the important thing is to keep at it and do the best I can, when I can.


  1. It's okay. Life happens. Sometimes you have to revise your training schedule. I had a business trip during marathon training. I had to do some revision and let a run go.

    Let it go!

  2. Thanks, Tara - I needed that. I'll let it go. I had a good 7 mile run today - I needed that too. : )
