Catching Up

Posted by bvcc Oct 1, 2008

Because of professional commitments, I haven't been able to update my training plan for a couple of days.  Here's what I did:

 

Sunday: Off

 

 

 

Monday: 4 miles fast

 

 

 

Tuesday: 6 miles slow

 

 

 

Wednesday: Off

 

 

 

Tomorrow: 8 miles pace

 

 

 

Comments: I've been taking it easier than planned, but that's OK.  I'm really just maintaining at this point.
