This week was a bit of a struggle as I was pretty tired all week but I guess that happens sometimes. Since I am still in a general phase of training I decided not to push the workouts as I don't want to force anything right now. Thursday's workout went better then expected as I covered 7 miles at 5:40 pace just by running 200 on/ 200 off so I was very pleased with that. Friday I had to sealcoat my driveway and my shoulders, neck, and back paid the price for it this weekend. The plan on Sunday was to do an hour fartlek during the long run but my body was beat. I decided to just do an easy 2 hours and not force anything as it was probably the worst I have felt all summer. I had also run 9 straight weeks of having a long run between 19-24 miles so I think having a lighter one this week worked out. As I get older I realize that forcing a workout when your body is not having it is not the smartest choice to make! Missing one workout in the grand scheme of things is not a big deal. I feel if you force a workout you can set yourself back for weeks. So the biggest advice I can give you is sometimes you have to listen to your body and adjust the training for that day! Anyways here is the weekly training and like always thanks for reading!
PM: Had to go get one thing at Stop and Shop so I decided to jog up there. Went the long way and actually felt pretty good! 3.5 miles. Daily Total: 21 miles
