Long Run (Read 816 times)




    I had a planned long run of 17 miles and had to cut it short by 3 miles due to the weather; it began

    to thunder and rain outside.


    My next long run is planned for two weeks away and the distance this time is between 19 and 20



    Since I had to cut my long run short this week, is it still okay for me to attempt the 19 to 20 mile

    on my next planned long run?


    How should I handle this?  I'd appreciate feedback.

        Thank you CanadianMeg for replying; my training log is on www.dailymile.com; I signed up in late March 2011.


        In summary, my total monthly milage is as follows: 


        April 2011 - Total miles run was 62


        May 2011 - Total miles run was 99


        June 2011 - Total miles run was 86 


        July 2011 - Total miles run as of 7/24/11 is 72  ( I plan on running 25 more miles this week for 97 total )


        I built up my long run to 10 miles and increased it to 15.5 recently on July 10, 2011.  I had planned

        on increasing my long run 2 extra miles giving me 17 yesterday July 24th but had to cut it short

        due to the weather; I only got in 14.
