Listen to Your Data & Your Body
Your watch & training plan tells a story, but doesn't have the final say
Could your running routine use a little shaking up?
Normal people have extra time on the weekends and that’s why the long run is typically done on the weekend. But does it have to be that way?
Since I raced on Monday (day off from work), I wasn’t about to turn around and do some speed work mid-week.
Instead, I opted for an easy 1 hour run (long run) and later in the week, after I recover more from the race and the long run, I’ll feel confident and recovered enough for some faster running.
Or maybe I won’t. In which case, I also feel confident skipping a workout and just running east distances.
My point in today’s post is this: just because your training plan calls for something doesn’t mean that’s exactly what you have to do. You can be flexible and adapt your training to how training is going.
