Tonight I had planned to complete an easy 8 km run after work. My plan seemed to be going well until about 4:00 this afternoon when a combination of steady rain and fatigue resulting from not enough sleep had me questioning whether I should run.
In the end the decision to postpone my run won out and I decided to take advantge and get some rest. I am planning to head to bed after I finish this post in the hope that I will be well rested and more energized tomorrow.
To make up for the missed mileage I am planning to either run twice tomorrow, once before work and once after, in order to make up for the 17 km I was planning to run today and tomorrow.
The two run option seems more likely at this point as I will likely not have time for a 17 km run, either before or after work.
Do you find yourself making up for mileage if you miss a run? How do you compensate for a missed run?
