Training Day Blues

We have all had them.  The day you are scheduled for a 5 mile tempo run and you can only run it at a long run pace.  Or worse, the long run that is supposed to be 10 miles and at 8 miles you hang up your shoes for the day.  While this can be unsettling, the way you recuperate and handle your next training run is more important.  Put the bad day behind you and focus on good eating, adequate hydration and plenty of sleep so that you are well prepared for your next run. A few less than perfect training runs will not spoil your chances for a PR in your next race.  Stay positive and your goals will stay within your reach.
