Great post Randy, especially the last sentence. I’ve been harping on Ed through emails to become more consistent. There’s nothing wrong with 1-2 days off per week at this point in his training. However, he needs to space them out. I see no reason for 2 days off in a row and definitely not 3 or more (unless due to injury). What gets me is that he always says “I’ll double up tonight.” However, I have yet to see a two-a-day in his training.
Ed, you just ran a very respectable 10k, you should be fired up to get out and run and keep improving. If you’d run like crap, I could see being a little bummed out.
Now shut the computer off and go for a run!!!
