How do I handle a couple set backs?
This week I am already missing 2 (and may be more if I do not get better soon) of my runs due to being sick. Next week I travel for work and will spend 4 days in North Carolina. I plan to bring my running gear and will contact the local YMCA to see if I can use their facility.
At least I know I will not miss my long runs. I have 14 miles scheduled for this weekend and 15 miles for the following weekend. I also need to get in an additional 24 miles each week (4,7,4,7). Should I consolidate the daily runs so I can meet my required mileage? Or if I miss one, do I just pick up where I left off?
I wasn't worried about my business trip next week, I knew it would mess with my training. It's this food poisoning that I have that is really making me stress. 2 weeks back to back with things that will interfere with training.
