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.
