Everything was generally in line with my plan for the month. I had hoped to do a little better on my additional exercises, however I got this nasty cold right after Naked Bavarian and cut way back for about a week afterwards. That week also contribute to my huge jump in sleep from February. I was putting in quite a few 10+ hour nights in order to shake it. I was probably back to 95% or so after a week, however it took another 7-10 days before the last vestiges (nasty cough) were finally gone. I don’t think it impacted my running much since I was already recovering from the race and putting in some very minimal mileage.
Even though the cold cut down a bit on my additional exercises, I only missed one day of my 4x10s during March and that was on account of a little 41 mile run. As I have mentioned before, the 4×10 is a good habit but not one that I’ll go out of my way to keep going. I’m pretty good about picking right back up if I miss a day. I had a skip day yesterday (27 mile run), but that didn’t stop me from get back into it this morning. I guess I would be more strict with this if it was my primary form of exercise or if I wasn’t as good about starting back up after a day off. My biggest challenge with my 4x10s are around vacations. I can manage to keep running during vacations, but I can’t seem to keep up with the rest of my exercise routines. Well, we’re still a couple months away from my next vacation so hopefully I can figure out a solution to this before the next one rolls around.
