This week was a huge FAIL. I skipped last weekend’s long run. I had intended to do it on Sunday night when we got back from climbing in Kentucky, but we got back kind of late, I was sore from climbing, it was hot out, and I just plain didn’t feel like running 13 miles. I’m not sure if that kicked off this week’s complete deviation from my plan or if it was just one of those weeks.
Anyway, I’m rethinking the use of a 22 week marathon training plan. I still have 18 weeks to go and I can’t fathom sticking to the plan for that long. I may count this week as one of my built in buffer weeks and move on, or I may look for a shorter plan and try to start over in a few weeks. In any case, I need to make some changes because this clearly isn’t working.
