I woke up twice last night with such an intense headache that at one point I thought I might have been shot. But when my alarm when off this morning for my run at 3:45 I felt fine. I did briefly contemplate just staying in bed but I figured that I’m awake so I may as well just get up. And I’m glad that I did. I had a great run this morning. I love those mornings where it’s cool out and the run seems easy. It was a great start to my Monday.
Of course by the time I got to work, I was wishing that I was still in bed. Thank goodness I have a coffee pot in my office.
Weekly Run Report for the week of June 8 – 14, 2015
Considering that I only ran 3 days last week, I’m pretty happy with my mileage.
Tuesday was easy run but Thursday was supposed to be 3.5 at my 5k pace but it really didn’t quite happen that way. Since I’m switching to morning running and it’s dark out, I’m having trouble pacing myself. 9:39 average pace isn’t bad but I’d like to try to drag my average pace for 5k down to the low 9’s or high 8’s.
I’ve been considering changing my training schedule from every other day to running on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the morning before work to and on Saturday and Sunday. I just find it really difficult to pace myself when it’s dark. I don’t know what I’m going to do but I think I’m just going to stick with the training schedule I have for right now and maybe adjust it next week after my next race.
Have you ever changed your training schedule mid-cycle?
