Busch Gardens - Yesterday, I had the crazy idea to take the girls and meet Katye and her family at Busch Gardens. They are visiting for a few days and we didn't have plans, so it worked out quite well. Unfortunately, we only got to spend a short time with them (lunch and a few rides), but we had a blast.
And I only regretted attacking Busch Gardens with a 6, 4 and 2 year old a few thousand times. OK, I'm kidding. Mostly.
Change in Plans - As you may recall, I have been following a modified version of the Hanson Brothers plan from Runner's World. I love this plan, but, and this is a big but, a six day a week schedule leaves little room for flexibility or rest. I started feeling tied to this schedule and I refuse to sacrifice my family life to get my runs in. It just won't happen.
So, I made another slight modification to the plan. I added a rest day by making Tuesdays "double days." Easy run in the morning. Speedwork at night. This means I can still get all my miles in, but I also gain an extra rest day (or the ability to throw in an unscheduled run, if I'd like). Now my plan looks like this ...
Talk about trial and error.
