Six days “on” signals feelings of fatigue and that back-of-the-mind conscience telling me it’s time for a Rest Day. Dangit!
A lightened project load for today is leaving me around the house, with far too much time (and energy) to think “I could fit in a run. Maybe a walk? bike ride? Maybe we can eat lunch at a park? The closet should probably be organized – do we need anything at the store?– get me outside!”. I’m resisting this for now, but not happily.
I have a week of “7 miles” ahead; no LR, no speed work, no challenges. To reduce the boredom that will inevitably occur, I’m planning to find 5 new 7 mile loops.
With the above-mentioned spare time today, I have a rapidly escalating desire to bake. Then have a photo shoot with my little treats! There is a good chance these treats will be using sunflower seeds and/or dried cranberries, which have both been sitting my pantry drawer for way too long.
I’m already dreading the Taper period. See above.
I love this post! And as a marathoner, or so-called “crazy” runner (by non-running friends/family), you will too.
16 miles on the agenda tomorrow is exciting to me – that’s when you know you’ve officially become Jaded by long distance training. 😉
A lunch time veggie burger + peach didn’t come close to filling me up – metabolism-on-high is officially in session!
I’m walking away from the computer (literally) to get some fresh air!
Any other restless trainees out there?
