The key to following a training plan is preparation and flexibility.
I write my workouts, on a white board, for the entire month, but I use a dry eraser so I can make changes when I need to.
I try to stick to the mileage but can move around days. This training week, I had to make some changes. I went out for a girl's night and it took me days to recover! I moved most of my runs to the evening so I could sleep in and cancelled a Spin Class. It wasn't the smartest decision but I had fun and then listened to my body after. I did still managed to get all my runs done though.
This upcoming week I'm heading on vacation for 9 days. I plan to get my long run in, before I leave and then see how timing works out for the rest.
