Unexpected Rest Day

Today I had planned to do an easy 8 km run. However, after a great weekend in terms of weather we had rain on and off all day today. I did not end up going for my run since it was raining hard when I left work.

I may end up doing the 8 km run on Thursday when I had originally planned to take a rest day. However, since I only had an 8 km run planned for today it will be easy to get in the mileage over the course of the week.

Considering the fact that I am planning 10 Yasso 800’s Thursday I would still like to use Thursday as a day of rest. If that is the case I will probably end up spreading the 8 km over the rest of my runs this week. For example, tomorrow it would be easy to turn my scheduled easy 10 km run into an easy 12 km run.

For now I think I will go through my usual stretching routine since I am not running tonight.

What do you do when forced to take an unexpected day of rest? Do you make up the mileage other days? Do you go for an extra run?
