I’m currently two days behind in Fabuary. A few times before I’ve gotten a day behind and I’ve just doubled up… but I don’t think I can handle tripling! So today I’ll just start from where I’m at and I’ll be two days short on Fabuary. Is there a March ab plan? I wouldn’t mind it!
We’re closing in on the last week of the 100 days challenge. I’m still on the fence about keeping the challenge going. On one hand, I like knowing I have to run every day. It keeps me from being a skipper because I’m tired or not feeling motivated (two easy excuses for me). On the other hand, I don’t want running to be a have to, but to keep it as a want to. So we’ll see.
It’s also challenged my thoughts about rest days. Previously, I thought rest days were essential. I still do, but my idea of them is modified. Before, a rest day was just that – complete rest, no running, no cross-training. A “rest day” now is a very easy, short run – a handful of miles at a slow pace. And you know what? My legs feel just as good and fresh as a full rest day… maybe even better.
What are your thoughts behind rest days?
