Unable to complete a planned session

Missed sessions :

"Hi Marius,

I am now in the 10th week of the 2:45 plan. Last week I did the Key Marathon session, 40min E1, 30min E2 & 40min E3 which was a good session and I could complete it.

Today I am trying to do 40min E1/40min E2/40min E3 in 10th week, however for some reasons, I feel tired towards the end and could only complete 40min E1/40min E2/ plus 10min E3 then stopped. I missed the last 30min of Effort 3.

I just want to know if I should do a make-up session for this one? Or should I just forget about it and continue the rest of training?

I worry that if I didn't complete this Key session, it may influence the overall training plan.


Answer: You should drop the session entirely. Never try and make up for a training session, even key ones like this. Instead, focus forward, forget about it and look at it as a way for your body to adjust the overall stress.

This is a philosophy I followed myself in my own career and I highly recommend the 100 day marathon plans runners do the same :)

I wish you all the best,
