Question on repeating weeks

Recommended Posts

Friday I finished up week 4.  It was a rough one for me, but it did end with success.  Leading up to week 4, I had opted to repeat week 3 because I didn't feel I was ready for week 4.  My first run on week 4 was a struggle.  I made it through the first 3 minute run and the first 5 minute run but couldn't complete the second 3 and 5 minute runs.  Week 4 run 2 was even worse, but I'm pleased to say that I made it through week 4 run 3 completely and it felt really good to be successful.


I'm wondering, when I find that I'm unable to complete a run like this, what's the best thing to do?  Should I just power through, run as much as I can and walk the remainder then advance to the next run?  Or, is this a signal that I should go back and re-do the previous week?

I always repeated a 'failed' session.  But I was also using a tracker (like MapMyRun or Runkeeper) so that, even in a 'failed' session, I could usually see improvement - that I went further or lasted long or maybe went faster than a previous session.


It would make it very satisfying when I'd finally break through and conquer a troublesome session.
