Rest Days are Important
Monday, February 08, 2010
I've been working out harder then usual, trying to get comfortable with the starting point of my half marathon training plan. I've been so tired that after my weekend work outs I don't feel like doing much else. I had been sore for the past couple of weeks.
I had been working through my rest days. You know how you read those articles in Runner's World and they work out every day? So I decided I should be doing more.
Well I finally took a rest day and boy do I feel great! I feel so refreshed and my legs actually feel happy. Plus I'm already looking forward to tomorrow's run.
I guess I can't compare myself to what others are doing. My rest days are important and I need to keep taking them.
