Extra Rest Day

I typically only take one rest day per week, but yesterday I didn’t run even though Monday was a rest day.  That 10 miles on Sunday really left me tired.  This would normally be fine, except that I am going to the lake this weekend, so there will probably be at least one more rest day.  I know that people need breaks every once in a while, but less than 2 weeks before my half marathon is a less than ideal time. 

Oh well, it is what it is, and I guess it is better than getting injured 2 weeks before the race because I pushed myself too hard.  Plus, it gave me all this extra time to get absolutely nothing done. Why is it that when I am super busy I get most things done, but when I only have a few things to do, nothing gets done?

How many rest days do you take?

Eats

Breakfast was a repeat of yesterday and again enjoyed outside.  Every morning when I let the dogs out the weather seems so beautiful that I need to go out there and enjoy it.

Lilly was super jealous.

My dogs don’t beg when I eat inside, but outside is fair game to them.

Lunch was nothing special.  You should see my (lack of) grapefruit eating skills.  I have to wipe my entire cube down every time.

Dan and I tag teamed dinner.  I made the rice

and he made this ground chicken veggie hash.

The combo was delicious.  That bowl was only one of my two servings.

I had a fruit bar for dessert (3).  Tastes like summer.

Thought for the day:

Daily Points (30) – Eating Points (31) = -1

  1. I take at least 2 rest days (because that is what my training schedule says), but every once in a while, it ends up being three rest days. This week will be one of those weeks because I gave blood, and realistically I won't work out on a Friday (which is my rest day). I know, I should have more discipline... I am working on it.
