Getting Back on Track

If you read last night’s post you know that today was going to be my first run in a couple of days since I was out of town for the weekend.

Fortunately I only had a short break from running and it was not too hard to get back on track today. If anything I probably benefitted from the extra day of rest after a tempo run on Thursday and a 32 km run Friday morning.

Since I moved my long run up to Sunday and did not do a run yesterday I decided to get back into my training with two runs today. The first was an easy 8 km run before work. I got off to a bit of a slow start to this run but started to feel better about 1 km into the run and finished with 8.3 km in 43 minutes.

My second run after work ended up being another easy run since I am planning to do Yasso 800’s tomorrow. Unlike my morning run this one felt good from the start, despite the rain, and I ended up with 5.5 km in 27 minutes.

The end result, 13.8 km in 1:10 of running today after a two day layoff.

Do you find it difficult to get back on track after a longer than usual layoff between runs?
