After a good first three days, this week has kind of fallen apart for training. Monday and Tuesday went well, then Wednesday was ok, and Thursday, Friday, today, and probably tomorrow are not good. Thursday I did get a good, hard 5 mile run in, but Friday turned into nothing. Today is raining and “various tasks,” so nothing happening today, either. Tomorrow isn’t looking good, either, but maybe I can bring myself to an inside bike workout after a swim.

My last training cycle was pretty good, and I was obviously trying to continue that trend. I wish this rain would go away and come back in November and December as snow. But I know all the rain is good for us. Maybe I can just believe that three lost days doesn’t translate to lost fitness, just lost gains.
