    I am currently working the Level II 10K Running Plan. For personal reasons (team runs & tune-race dates) I have set up my schedule with a race day one day later than actual. I will need to make a final adjustment to the schedule for the final week or two in order to maximized my form on race day.

    I am looking for for suggestions where and how I can “lose” a day and yet maximize my fitness/form on race day.

    Charles, if I understand correctly, you need an 8-day plan for that last week instead of a 7-day plan. If so, I recommend:

    Monday: Off
    Tuesday: RFF3
    Wednesday: RF3
    Thursday: RSP4
    Friday: RF3
    Saturday: Off
    Sunday: RRe2
    Monday: Race

    David,

    Thank you. I guess I wasn’t clear, my race will be on the Saturday you have marked off. I need to lose a day.

    Because the Sunday prior is a RFF7, does it make sense to move the Monday rest day to Thursday and drop the RFF3 day? I’m guessing that the following adjustment is consistent with the outline you posted…

    Sunday: RFF7
    Monday: RF3
    Tuesday: RSP4
    Wednesday: RF3
    Thursday: Off
    Friday: RRe2
    Saturday: RACE

    Charles, you’ve created an excellent adjustment for a 6-day week, couldn’t have done it better. Approved! Best of luck in your race.
