Take a look at my week in running last week.
I didn't run at all.
On Monday, I did the "Hot 100s" (100 seconds of plank, 50s each of side plank and 100s of wall sit) and then I started to get a cold.
By Wednesday, it was a full on, horrible cold.
I decided to take the entire week off of any kind of exercise and to just be.
I haven't done this since last November after I hurt my knees on the downhill at the Hamilton Half Marathon.
It felt great to not have to worry about fitting in a run and to just let go.
Do you know what else felt great?
This morning's run:
That's 5:46 in the AM people!
Woo! Back at it!
It sucks that I wasn't well, but I think the time off has refocused my off season. I'm looking forward to keeping the mileage up in the coming weeks.
