I took an unplanned day off yesterday because I had a disorganized and chaotic day at work. Today I felt great for my tempo paced running, so I think the day off was a good thing. I hardly ever have a day where I don't do any training at all, so when I do take one of those days it feels like such a nice rest.
Today I did a 2 mile warm up on the treadmill, then 3 repeats of 1 mile at 7 minute pace with a little jog between each, then a nice cool down. I'll do weights and core work tonight.
I'm happy with how my training is going so far. I have to keep building on it in preparation for Massanutten, but I also have to be careful not to get injured or mentally burnt out. So far, so good.
