Rest Days...Taking a Break
I also hoped by taking a rest day today I will be more ready for a long run this weekend. My half is two month out. Time to kick up the training. The forecast for this weekend is for cooler sunny weather. I can't wait. Now I just have to convince hubby that he really wants to run 8 or 9 miles this weekend. I might have a chance he has been doing a few shorter runs this week. Keep your fingers crossed.
I do notice I used to take rest days because my body could not handle the running. Now my rest days are more for me to mentally recharge. I guess that means over all I am a stronger runner. Also I have been able to add back in a few more planks. Not back to everyday but have gotten 3 in this week so far. I can already tell the difference with adding them back.
How can you tell you need a rest day?
