Today would normally have been the day when I went for my ‘long run’ in preparation for a marathon in May. However, the weather has disrupted my training twice this week. My plan would have been to do 5 or 6k (3 miles) on Wednesday, but a few inches of snow and freezing temperatures scuppered that, as the pavements were far too icy to run on. And today, the heavens have opened and snow is forecast all day. Already we have about a foot of snow, so Jude and I are confined to barracks.
This means my weekly total is a big round 0k (0 miles). But regular runners will know that it’s best just to write off the week (as you would if you had an injury or were ill) and continue with my plan from week 4 onwards. (Note that Week 1 was actually week 52 of 2018, but I couldn’t find a way to set that on Excel).
