Acknowledge, Refrain, Obey

resting your feetLast night I did NOT go running.  I wanted to…I had the opportunity to….I could have but I didn’t.  Rob went running and I nearly caved and ran out after him but I remembered that rest days are important so I stayed in and kept working.  I got a few things done for work that I wouldn’t have otherwise finished which is great.  This morning I was able to put up 4.08 miles and I took a route that has hills and I did it in a respectable time for where I’m at currently, pulling a 9:23 leisurely pace because I’m enjoying not training for anything in particular at this time.  I feel like that time and getting 4 good miles in was achieved partly because I obeyed the rest day.
