If you've never experienced such fun, I'll explain. These books don't read like normal books, from start to finish. You start them, and then you reach a decision point, which will direct you to another page, and the story keeps unfolding that way until you reach one of the several different endings.
1) Do your run today. (Turn to page 15)
2) Sleep in. (Turn to page 30)
So, I've reached a "what would you do" moment and thought I'd ask for opinions. How should I plan out my "Week 14" to account for the days I have off?
I've been doing a tempo run each week, varying in distances between 3-8 miles. I should also note they are not easy for me. I failed the 6-mile one (did it, just not on pace) but have succeeded at the others. I'm wondering if missing one tempo run will hurt me too much.
Week 13 of 16: (this week)
Monday - 3 miles
Tuesday - 30 min cross-training
Wednesday - 8 miles tempo
Thursday - rest or 3 miles (most likely will do the run)
Friday - rest
Saturday - 14 miles slow
Sunday - rest
Week 14 of 16: (next week)
Monday - 4 miles
Thursday - 3 miles
Friday - rest
Saturday - 23 miles slow
Sunday - rest (duh)
I figure my choices are:
A) Run those 4 miles on Monday at tempo
B) Try to run those 8 miles at tempo on Monday
C) Ignore the days off, rest and recharge
D) Try to plug in some tempo miles on Thursday
All right... vote now!
