This popped into my mind last night when I should have been settling down to sleep. I have race day on my mind and all I want to do is go out and run. Really, I want to run like crazy. But guess what I did this morning instead? I slept in. Am I crazy? Hopefully not. My left hammie is a little achy. I did a short easy run to warm it up yesterday afternoon so I could do some foam rolling to give it some love. Then I reset my alarm at the last minute thinking, my training is done. There is no more training I can do for Sunday. I am either prepared or not (I am thinking, prepared) so why push the darn leg. Let it rest. Let it get strong.
In terms of running miles I have done close to nothing recently but I haven't really taken a rest day. I read somewhere that those things are good for you and that housework, errands, etc. don't count as rest. Really?! They don't? I'm not running. But I do feel like I have been running non-stop the past few days as I have had so many things to do and the whirlwind of errands doesn't stop anytime soon. How does that sound for the days leading up to a marathon?
So I decided to do what I can and if that means less miles to get more zzz's I need to get more zzz's. So please ignore that itty bitty run on my daily mile widget....it will be bigger soon!
