Life can throw us curve balls sometimes. Whether we run out of time, our bodies feel bad, or we want to add in a social element that is different from our training, we find ourselves needing to modify. Life is full of disruptions, being able to intelligently modify your running plan can immensely increase your ability to thrive.
MOST IMPORTANT THING: Understand your training and the purpose of every run.
What could be modified?
- Specific features of a workout
- Length or effort of a run
- Schedule (when to do what, how much, how fast, day-to-day, weekly, etc.)
When is it time to modify something?
- If a workout is too hard (but I’m doing what the plan says!)
- Don’t have enough time
- Jump in a race
