"A plan of attack only survives until the first encounter with an enemy" and this week my enemy was my schedule.
Almost instantly after posting my training plan I checked my schedule and realized that I had several meetings scheduled both before and after work throughout the week, and a trip that was planned for Sunday. This meant that my longer daily runs were not going to happen with meetings interfering on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and then of course not having the ability to schedule a long run on Sunday since I had a total of 3 hours of "free time" to get my life together and head out the door. Needless to say I had to do some math and get in runs any point I could.
