Oh happy rest day :-) I KNOW I made the right decision now regarding my run yesterday. I've been achy, sore and my knee seems to be acting up today...a sure sign I need a bit of a break. Or, well, as much as I am willing to take :-) It means low key activities for a few days now....swimming, biking, core, and yoga. I think I will push off either my speed work or tempo this week and just do two runs....then give it 3 quality weeks before tapering!
I'd rather put the rest in now than feel like I am battling this:
ice storm of '91 for triathletes and I was part of it :-P
Oh wait, I digress. Sorry, just wanted to put the cool picture up. Anyways, the point is...I want to prepare my body to handle ANYTHING on race day...not kill it beforehand.
So that means a Rae planned running recovery week. Let's see how well I do!!
On deck today:
1. swimming (done)
2. Grocery shopping (done-with a suprise visit from the hubby halfway through!)
3. Healthy dinner of veggie stuffed omelet and soup (done)
4. Soaking in some Dr. teals....mmmm....
6. Hot cocoa
7. and a trashy novel
Who said Mondays were all bad???
