Lucky for me last week went well for training, because this week has been bad. The little guy is killing me with his lack of sleep. More about that in another post though.
Like I said, last week I stayed on track and got all of my runs in. Not too bad. I do well with training plans. I am usually pretty diligent about getting all the runs in and then when it comes time to run the race, I feel very prepared and it's usually an easier race for me too. I have started to change up my speedwork runs though because trying to do them at the end of the week made it tough to power through. Doing them after a rest day is much more doable.
