I really like to read the daily blog posts from Endurance Corner. It is mainly a triathlon site; but endurance training is endurance training.
Wednesday's post particular hit home, written by Sam Doolittle, especially the line:
“train as much as I can consistently train”
I've been doing well with this. I really don't have the athlete's guilt going on about missed workouts. If I can't get the workout in, due to dogs, work, schedules, then I move on.
What I have been good at, is doing it. Doing the workouts. I was pretty tired headed out on my Wednesday run, but I didn't even think about not doing it, or cutting it short. About mile 3, I actually started to feel pretty good, and finished it two minutes quicker than my usual time.
So today was a planned 10K run, but due to family commitments it is now a 1K dog walk. It will also be my time to get my all my gear and clothing packed for the Mohican weekend, so I guess I better get moving!!
