Making the transition back into marathon training in the heart of the holiday season is a wee bit tricky! I knew it would be… I missed a run this week due to an error in judgement Wednesday night at a holiday gathering that resulted in a gnarly hangover. Of course, I should know better… but I am human and slip up from time to time. Lesson learned and onward.
The skipped run resulted in me missing my weekly mileage goal by 4.5 miles but it’s not the end of the world. I had a strong long run on Sunday and got in a good hilly session with the November Project on Wednesday so not all was lost.
I’ve rearranged the early part of my training schedule for this week to accommodate another party but I’m shooting for 42 miles this week. My goal is to make this week and next really count before the Christmas/New Year’s whirlwind!
Have a great week!
