I am now training for the October half marathon and hope that my son will be able to do it with me. Last night we were supposed to run 3 miles (seems so small of a distance now!) but we opted not to because it was late, getting dark and raining. Let me clarify. Rob wanted us to forego and I wasn’t in the mood to push it so I chalked it up to rest. I don’t rest a lot which I know isn’t a good practice. Today makes day 5 for not running. I will run the 3 tonight but it still is 5 entire days since my half marathon. I guess I needed to have a reason to stay in last night so why not make it rest. The way I look at it, two training sessions back to back for two half marathons warrants a few days rest in between right? RIGHT! Just say right 🙂 So I have adjusted my gym / running schedule again for this training session. It will feel really good to get back to the gym for some things other than spin. I miss the gym a little. Rest is over now get back to work!
Do you regularly add rest between training sessions?
