I guess it all depends on what has come up that causes you to miss a workout.......

I missed Tuesday ... it was only a 5k run but by the time I got home, I was tired and I made the mistake of laying on the couch ... I kept thinking about getting my butt in gear (even after 10pm) ... but it never happened and now I regret it because there was no real reason. I should have also cycled at least 1-2x this week to work (60k round trip). Totally been slacking in this area.

Now I have to make it up and this weekend I have a century ride + a sprint (or super sprint) tri + 5k run (which I can count towards the sprint tri) + 8km run. And the missed 5k run - which I plan to do on Friday.

I'm going to have to move the 8k run to Monday and miss a rest day ... and hopefully this teaches me to not miss any more days!

Looking at your upcoming schedule, I would say that it is A-OK to miss a 5k run. Think of it as an extra day to recover, which may pay dividend in the end.

I don't fret over the missed workouts anymore like i use to. I look at it as extra recovery. Now if I miss several workouts in a row then I just get pissed.Cool

too many people worry about missing a singe workout and don't look at the big picture. If it is a key workouts a few weeks out from a big race it might be a different story, but in general its not a huge deal.

When it is a huge deal is when people try to cram into into their schedule later in the week, thus compromising the rest of their workouts, recovery periods, etc.

As tough as it may seem, usually it's best to just let go of a missed workout, moving on ahead as planned. Training and fitness improvements don't quite work like school or things for work. You don't just get credit for doing the job. It's a development process. Have to balance the workload and recovery to reach up the highest. They work together to do this. If there is too much of one or the other things won't grow as well as they may not support each other as well. Could topple over or collapse even. It's great to want to get everything in, but do so as planned, or within some parameters allowed for the plan. Otherwise keep moving forward while trying to figure out how to get through a similar situation better in the future.

The consistency of months of workouts is way more important than any one, two or three missed workouts.

Using a high-volume schedule for many months is not the best tactic. Build speed and skill several months out, and then transition to a high-volume IM plan.

Fact is, it's tough. Best bet is to do the training that you can, and let the chips fall where they may.
