I don't think anyone missed the point. If you have access to a treadmill there's no need to cross train instead.

If you are on a longer schedule and can factor in drop-back weeks and the like then you can get away with it but not on a programme this short.

For me, one missed long run for whatever reason wont ruin campaign regardless of wether its missed through work/life/CNBA/floods or illness. If it was due to illness most folks would advise to miss the session and would add that it wont ruin the campaign. And it could be argued that illness over cnba/floods/ice etc would set you back further as you need to get healthy again to train. I've certainly missed some of the planned runs through my campaigns due to injuries etc I had to miss 10 days in a row (inc 2 long runs) last January, but there was plenty of cross training in there..........consistency and completing most of the plan is the most important, doing the odd session as cross training rather than running wont hurt.

I agree that one or two sessions can afford to be missed but by missing one by CNBA means one less you can miss through injury - illness.

Agree with Millsy. Its almost inevitable life will throw a spanner in the works at some point in the schedule. Therefore using a cnba means that cushion has been wasted.

Completely agree.
