That should make life interesting to say the least.
Of course, me being the worrier/planner/obsesser that I am, I'm already trying to figure out when I can squeeze everything in because I really don't want to lose another week of workouts.
Perhaps I'm just worrying because I had a crappy run yesterday. I always try not to let bad runs get the better of me, but yesterday was totally miserable. I felt like I hadn't fueled enough before and my legs just hurt from the get go. I figured after taking 2 days off that I'd feel great. I did have a massage on Wednesday and A.R.T work done on Tuesday so perhaps my legs haven't quite recovered from that yet. Who knows. All I know is that yesterday sucked. There was ONE positive from yesterday's run and that was the fact that my knees didn't hurt at all. Usually they hurt when I start running and then they're fine. Yesterday I started running with no pain. Zero. And I managed to hammer the downhills with no pain either. Another plus I guess. My quads have paid the price for that today but I've got another A.R.T session on Wednesday to help work that out. The other positive was that I managed to go 1 second faster than my goal pace per km. I was supposed to average 5:03/kms and I managed 5:02's for just over 32km. Ok so that's 3 positives. Guess I found the silver lining in yesterday's run after all.

How do you deal with a bad run?
