The mojo is back.
Seriously, as soon as I started I was able to remember why I love running so much. It calmed and centered me, proving it really is cheaper than therapy. I totally rocked it, too: 2.18 miles in 30 minutes for an average pace of 13:46 (I was running, like, 16 minute miles the past week or two because of the heat). Plus, my second mile was almost a full minute faster than my first. No. Seriously.
|Looooooove that the Runkeeper app shows the split times|
By the time I was finished I was buzzing with endorphins and felt like I could take on the world.
Instead I decided to take on another 5K. Oh yes: my second 5K isn't until next Saturday, but I've already signed up for a third. Because that's how I roll, yo. Counting my first, that will be three 5Ks in as many months. How crazy is that? Totally loco, right?
I fully support rest and recovery days, especially with the weekend looming which is when I do my long runs. Had I had more time yesterday I would have gone much longer than 30 minutes. Instead I rested today and am gearing up for a nice loooooong run tomorrow. I am surprisingly looking forward to it.
Again: totally loco.
Are you a fan of rest days or do you like to workout every day?
Love from the ashes,
