Perhaps it was the relief from the stress of our first phase of the transcontinental move that allowed my body to finally put its defenses down, but I got sick for the second time in nearly a month’s time. As such, I took a week and a half long break from running and working out in general. I missed five training runs in total, two of which were long runs.
The last time I recovered from being sick, I added one of the runs I missed as a fourth recovery training run a week until I caught up in three weeks time. However, because I am ramping up mileage at this stage, I will be starting where I left off and running more frequently until I catch up. The potential exception will be the weekends when I run both days and only if I am feeling it.
