I said yesterday's run was in jeopardy due to complete lack of energy. Well, I managed to get up off the deck and post a decent run: 6 miles in 1:03. It wasn't great, but wasn't so bad, either. I've done better, but not since January.
But here's the kicker: yesterday was a scheduled rest day. The TUESDAY run was scheduled for 5 miles, but I was on the deck so hard Tuesday night my schedule was off by a block. So, the rest day that I THOUGHT was today is actually a day scheduled for speedwork.
I so hate The Almighty Schedule I can taste it.
I've been tinkering with The Almighty Schedule anyway, so a little more tinkering may not be so bad. I might skip tonight's run and overload the miles tomorrow (with a little speed work thrown in), tack on a 3 easy miles Saturday (scheduled rest day), and then be back on track for the LongSlowDistance run for Sunday (9 miles scheduled).
Or, I might get in a long, easy run tonight, skip tomorrow, sneak in some miles Saturday, and be on track for the LSD on Sunday.
Or, I might rest tonight, run tomorrow morning with an easy 6, cross on Saturday, LSD on Sunday.
I don't know. Maybe I just need to rest to the weekend and try and get my clock straight. I'd hate to lose out on the miles for this week--I don't have any more time in July to make them up.
