  • Adapt for heat or change day of workout?

    Posted by Elke Miot on June 11, 2022 at 2:02 pm


    I am doing the 12 week 40-50 mpw half marathon plan from Final Surge. Race day is next Sunday. My only/last SOS type run this coming week is scheduled for Tuesday. Lactate threshold, 6x800m at goal HM pace with 400m recovery.

    My question: Tuesday is supposed to be very hot and even in the morning it won’t get under 75-77. I will run very early for best temps. Should I switch dates, adapt paces or try to do as written and adapt as needed? Thank you!

    Personally, I’d adjust paces in a situation like that. But as long as you’d have time to recover before your next SOS you could swap days around.

      Thank you! I think that will be fine, I may not even have to adjust much since it is just 800s at race pace and then I have recovery. Definitely will go out early and see how I feel. Glad the hardest workouts are done now that the temperatures are going up!

        FYI this is actually the last workout before my race on Sunday. So the rest of the week will be easy and slow.
