Lesson Learned: Assembling the Week

I should know better.

I'm a personal trainer. I'm a coach. I've been doing this endurance sports thing for a couple years now. Not long in the grand scheme of things, but long enough to know better.

Never ever ever schedule a long run for the day after your first weight workout in months. Not unless you want to run ridiculously slowly (even for a long run) and make it less than halfway through your planned mileage for the day.

Ah well. Lesson learned.


  1. I would have been CRAWLING!!!


  2. Crawling for 10 miles would be tough. But then, running for 10 miles is pretty tough, too.

  3. There is something to be said for training your body to work efficiently when it is tired, right?
