So I feel a liiiittle short of my intended weekly mileage. By ten miles. Yep, I was supposed to hit 30 miles this week, but I came in with a whopping 20. And I wish I could blame it all on the Bronx Half being cancelled and hurricane Irene, but that’s not really the case.
After last Sunday’s great 18-miler, I took Monday as a rest day. Tuesday, I was back on the track for some speed work. It was a really nice change of pace to run in some cooler, drier fall-like weather (excited for more in the next few weeks). Wednesday I did a double-header at Core Fusion w/ a cardio class followed by slow flow yoga. I loved this combo and both classes were great. Then the wheels fell off… Thursday morning I was sore from yesterday’s cardio class and skipped my morning run, figuring I’d do it later that night. It was also around this time that information about the hurricane started to materialize. I started to think that maybe I wouldn’t/shouldn’t run the Bx Half on Sunday, and started to come up with a back-up plan… long story short, the race was cancelled and I didn’t have a great back-up plan. Or at least I didn’t follow the plan.
Here’s how it actually went:
- Monday: 1 mile easy shake-out w/ husband
- Tuesday: Speedwork on the track – 2×1200, 4×800 w/ 1 mile warm-up, 1 mile cool down (times posted on Daily Mile).
- Wednesday: Core Fusion Cardio, Slow Flow Yoga
- Thursday: NOTHING
- Friday: NOTHING
- Saturday: 13.1 miles
- Sunday: NOTHING
So there’s my 20 mile week. When I actually should have had a 20-mile run this weekend. Yikes. I’m fine with cutting back a couple miles, but this was a bit much and I could have planned a little better.
I’m well aware that this week’s crappy mileage will not greatly impact my training overall. I do worry, however, about time management with workouts as school starts up. If I’m not getting all my workouts in now, I’ll need to step it up a bit when school begins and my schedule gets a little crazy.
Did the hurricane through off your plans this weekend?
