A friend just asked me "why don't you do your long stuff during the week, and have the weekends to hang out with your husband"? Since I don't work or have kids I certainly could, but this had not occured to me(duh) and since we had been training together for our marathon and I am not into the really LONG stuff yet it has not been an issue. My current traininig schedule calls for a long ride on Saturday and a long run Sunday (Mondays off). So I have 2 questions:
1. Is there any reason I can't just shift everything and do my long ride on say Thursday and the run on Friday and then rest day on Saturday?
2. Could I jugle the work outs through the week as long as I don't have back to back "hard run" days for example and as long as the key workouts are there? I have heard some advocates of the back to back long ride/runs and some that say no. I have always done them back to back on the weekends, but am open to other ideas.
It kinda seems it would throw me off a bit since race day is Sunday , or maybe not.
What does everyone else do?
