More Non Running

Well it looks like all the shit has caught up with us. Oh well. We are still so far out from the marathon that I am not too concerned about it. The original plan of course was to run 5 miles yesterday and then 17 today. We didn't get the 5 miles in yesterday because of the awfulness that was Wednesday and there just wasn't any time with work stuff.

Today we are still going to try and run but we don't know how far we'll make it. We have to head west to drop our cat off and run a bunch of errands tonight. When we get back if we are feeling up to it we'll go out for a run.

I am feeling that I had overdone it and so I'm ok with missing these two runs. I don't think that pushing yourself till you vomit is necessarily a good sign. We will then still run our recovery week next week in Lancaster, and then the following week we'll probably have to take completely off because of travel and work schedules. The following week we'll repeat the recovery week and continue from there.

I'm not very happy about missing a 17 mile run since these are the important ones to keep up with. But sometimes life happens and there isn't anything you can do about it. I'm still very early in the training schedule and will have lots to time to do lots more 17+ mile runs so I'm sure it'll be ok.

So here's to a good trip in the United Kingdom and stay tuned for posts from the other side of the pond!

Don't sweat the missed runs. You guys have been putting in some serious miles. I'm sure your joints, ligaments, tendons and assorted other body parts will appreciate the break. Plans are meant to be changed.
