A rest day

Sunday, September 01, 2013

I am taking a rest day today. That means just walking and yoga. No running, no elliptical, no kayaking. I definitely need the break. We kayaked 5 of 7 days last week. That is quite a bit. I was contemplating going for a run later, but I decided to wait until tomorrow. One day of relaxing won't get me off track, and I will probably do better for having taken the day off. Well... off by my definition. LOL! I will still keep my fitness streak alive after all. (Day 712 today of 120+ minutes every day.)

Still haven't decided if I am going kayaking tomorrow or not. I am having a little anxiety about it. No doubt if I go I will have fun, but it is new water with a lot of current. I think I would prefer doing the lower Niagara River again instead of daring the upper Niagara. It is that whole Niagara Falls issue. My brother says it "probably" wouldn't be an issue. I am not certain I like the word "probably"!

    I certainly understand why you would feel anxiety about Niagara Falls. That wouldn't be a mistake that you could make. My DH was telling me about a guy that went over the Falls in a barrel and survived. He later died when he slipped on a banana peel.... go figure!

    Enjoy your rest day! Sounds like you are really going to need it!

I don't like Niagra and kayak in the same sentence!!!! Scary, I am sure you and brother will maneuver it with ease.

    Enjoy your 'rest' day ;) Good luck with what ever you decide with the kayak tomorrow! I don't trust a guy saying 'probably' though :P
Today was supposed to be my rest day too, but ended up doing a tough 170 minute hike anyway!!

    I find I do better on runs/long walks when I take a break. Of course like you, I still do SOMETHING, usually 3 miles on my treadmill. But you are a youngster compared to me! Enjoy your day; I'm sure you have a good book you are reading.

    I'm not too keen on that probably either! Best of luck, no matter what you decide.
