How to Make Up for Missed Training Runs
The Reality of Detraining
Drop Some Runs
Modify Remaining Weeks
Ease Back Into Your Schedule
Here’s one more strategy, offered by Coach Jeff Gaudette. If it’s just a few days of training that have been missed, Gaudette recommends easing back into your training schedule with three or four easy runs that have been decreased in distance to about 80-90% of the scheduled mileage. By throwing in some strides or explosive hill sprints, says Gaudette, you’ll engage the central nervous system and prime the legs for some harder runs.
