Rest? What is that?

I don’t know if you know this about me, but I do not like “rest” days!

It’s not that I mind taking a day off from running by doing another activity or taking it easy with my workout from time to time. I just don’t like those days when I’m not supposed to (or can’t) do anything!

Unfortunately, now that I am sick, I must take complete rest days. On Tuesday, the first day I felt ill, I took a 45 minute walk. But ever since then I have not done anything but sit, lay down, drink lots of fluids and eat some nutrient dense food (and some not-so-nutrient-dense, ha ha).

With a 10 mile race coming up next Saturday, I will admit to being a little nervous but I can say with a sound mind that I have done the best I can with my training. Life happens, things come up, people get sick, we run out of time, etc.

I don’t care if I have to run-walk this race or if my time is slower this year. I’m not hoping to do anything but show up and have a good time!

I will start reporting my workouts again when they start happening again. I’m trying to take little walks here and there while I’m at work but nothing too strenuous. Thank you all for your feedback on my last post!
