My schedule is set up so that I do a long run on Saturday, rest day Sunday, and 3 miles on Monday. Since I did the long run on Sunday instead, I sorely missed that rest day. (Pun intended.)
I ambitiously set out for my scheduled 3 miler but my body just wasn’t having it. After struggling through a mile and a half of no energy and achey guts and twingey legs I decided that was enough and half a run was better than none anyway. I’d rather listen to my body and rest up for my tempo run tomorrow.
On a positive note, I’ve just about logged 50 miles this month. That’s a first! So many firsts lately. :)
