Sometimes I have a slow race and I immediately bounce back, ready to try again. Not so this week. The heat kind of took it out of me, and I needed to really recover with lighter miles and easier speed work Sunday through Tuesday. By Wednesday, I was feeling fine again, but I'm glad I didn't push anything early. I kind of wanted to, because I got anxious about my upcoming races (for which I feel underprepared), but since even the easy stuff felt tiring, I think I was smart. Despite the easier runs, I'll still finish this week with over 50 miles, thanks to transitioning into marathon training. I'm doing the tail-end of Hansons and I hope it works! I'm sure that goes against everything their plan teaches.
Have you ever modified a training plan, or done an incomplete version?
