This evening I went to ran to La... Read more

I decided to run 7K today, and take a day off from running tomorrow, based on those many articles and feedback asking me to rest.

Somehow many articles come to me saying that the best is to do 5-6 days of cardio per week, and 1-2 days of rest. So, probably this weekend I will do one day off from running, and do something else to exercise, light.

The day was long, and I get to run only at night again. I was very tired, but somehow my body automatically took on the running gear and started moving.
