I've been out running every day for the past 5 days. I'm really kicking my training too. it's awesome.
My question is, tomorrow is supposed to be a later day for me - I'm teaching dance lessons after 7pm. I was debating making tomorrow my "day off".
When I ran in the past, I needed to force myself to take one day a week off. Otherwise my body was just burning out.
I don't feel like I want to take my day off.
But I know from experience I should.
My schedule lends itself to me taking tomorrow morning off.
Then Friday I can do an easy run in the morning, gearing up for my 60min run Saturday.
If anything goes wrong Saturday, I have Sunday to do my long run.
It all just lends itself to making tomorrow my day off.
But I'm scared.
I'm afraid if I take one day off, it'll lead to two. Then three. Then weeks later I'll realize what I did.
Getting up early to run is hard for me. I'm not finding it hard right now though.
What if I can't get up and run again after taking a day off?
I can't run later in the day - it's way WAY too hot here for that.
What to do, what to do. I need to decide soon. I don't like to leave things until the last minute. Hmmm.
