Now I lay me down to rest…

Ok..my hiatus on running will be a week old tomorrow.  I haven’t run since my 1/2 marathon on May 5.  This hiatus was purpose.  I almost want to take another week.   I wanted to just rest.    Yes, I wanted to sleep in a little and not be sweaty or achy.  Surprisingly, I was a little achy.  I know it’s expected after a run but not by Day 5 of recovery.  I guess that’s my age showing?  Sigh.

I had been going hard with the training for 17 weeks straight.  I had one hiccup with being sick for 4 days but that’s it.  I haven’t not run in over a week since I started in May of 2010.  I read in Runner’s World mag this great article about taking a break. I did walk with BusyKid #1.

Sometimes in all the busyness you just need to give yourself a break.
