I am following a training plan (Runners World, run 10k in under 55 mins) and am running a 10k race (my third) on July 14th. It is a 12 week training plan with specific runs on specific days rather than just fitting in 3 runs a week like I am used to.
The problem is that I have got a couple of days behind. I had a cold last weekend and was meant to run Saturday, Sunday and Monday. I did Saturdays run as prescribed, shifted Sunday's run to Monday and did Monday's last night so I'd had a rest days in between - I'm still not fully better so I thought I'd better not over do it. So my question is this:
As I have a specific race date planned and the training programme leads up to that day I'm now going to always be a couple of day's behind so what do I do? Do I skip one of the runs to get back on track or do I skip a couple of rest days to try and get all the runs in?
Any thoughts/advice appreciated. Just can't decide what is best...
