Rest days are well deserved and should be taken whenever you are training. Your body needs to recover, your muscles will thank you, your brain, well it might not thank you, because it wants to be out there, but it will thank you. I decided today would be a rest day. After a 12 mile run, then MTB and a 6 mile run and MTB, why not.
My Wife said “Are you ok, taking a rest day?” I said yes why not? “You haven’t taken a day off in forever.” Which prompted me to look at Endomondo. I took Friday off. Friday is Date night. But then it’s been a busy month. beyond that.
So I wanted to see how my first “half” (it’s only the 14th) month went. I have 47 miles running in, 70 miles on the road bike, with another 15 miles on the mountain bike. Not to mention 5 softball games. So yea, I’ll take a rest day.
