Just about a month ago, I plucked a training plan from a random magazine and got psyched up to train for the Philadelphia Half-Marathon.
Things got out of control pretty quickly, huh? The bad news: I missed a week thanks to the stomach flu. The good news: Despite the lost week and scratched-out schedule, I nailed my first longer run of the program, a lovely six-miler on Monday.
How closely do you follow your training plans? How do you handle schedule curve balls?
One response to “(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday: the ‘amended half-marathon training plan’ edition”
I am pretty darn awful at following a training schedule, unless I’m training for a marathon. That’s why I have to run ultras. Very forgiving.
Glad you nailed your 6 miler. That’s a great sign!
