Most Sunday nights I sit down with my calendar and figure out my plan for the week. I figure out which days I can run after Beer Geek gets home and which days I need to try and run while the kids are at school. When I’m working with a training plan, I shuffle the prescribed runs to fit into my schedule that week, which means sometimes my long runs end up closer together than planned. When I’m not actually following a plan, I just figure out how many miles I can run on a given day at a given time and makes sure that my planned mileage for the week is as close to 30 as I can get. This gives me a little wiggle room if I need to cut a run short or skip a run.
This week is a little weird. I have some evening meetings, the boys have a couple of days off of school, Beer Geek had a dentist appointment, but he’s sick so I rescheduled it…
So, this week, I’m just rolling with it. I’m planning to run 6 of the 7 days, but I’ll decide each morning when the best time will be and how many miles I’m going to do. I’m aiming for 30 miles. Guess we’ll see how this little experiment works.
Oh, and here’s my first ever Age Group hardware! (Sorry for the crappy picture quality.)
