Less Is More
That said sometimes we are forced albeit kickin' and screamin' to accept that fact and deal w/ it as was the case after Wednesdays spectacular Bonk on my 8 miler,rather than trudge through another 8 miler w/ potentially the same outcome and or do more harm than good I sat out Thursday and then took my regular day off on Friday leaving me w/ a weekend schedule of 8x300x200x300m repeats on Saturday followed by a 10 miler on Sunday.....5 days and 40mpw the exact schedule I had originally thought I'd operate on b4 I'd even ran a mile after my two month long stint on the DL w/ my recent bout w/ Tendonitis.
I guess I got lulled into a false sense of security when I was only upping my daily mileage by .5 a day that 6 days a week was doable,it's a tad more difficult when you're then running 8 miles a day compare to 9 miles a week but thats not to say 6 day weeks aren't in my future but for now scaling back to 5 days a week at 40mpw will do untill I feel I'm ready to make that step up whenever that may be.
I'll blog the repeats in a seperate blog,the 10 miler yesterday passed w/out incident thankfully although there were a few moments when I had visions of another bonk in the final mile but thankfully lightning didn't strike twice in the same place and I had the satisfaction of a 5 day 40 mile week to reflect on as I ready myself for more of the same this coming week.
