This is the shortest training recap that I’ve ever written. I only worked out once this past week.
On Saturday, I ran 3.30 miles, followed by a 0.49 mile cool down walk.
That’s it. No extra cardio. No weight training. It just didn’t happen.
Between letting my body rest after last Sunday’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach Half Marathon, followed by a long first week at school with my students, which included unexpected foot and Achilles pain as well as Back to School Night on Thursday, training just wasn’t in the cards for me this past week.
But I’m not letting the lack of training get me down. Its clear that I was in dire need of the extra rest days. And I’m more than happy that I listened to my body. But I’m also ready to keep myself in half marathon shape for my next half in just six short weeks.
QOTD: When was the last time that you had to put resting your body over trying to work through the pain?
