I hope you are having a good weekend so far!
I decided earlier this last week that I was going to take the rest of the week off which isn’t something I’ve done in a long time (unless it was after a race). I’m not sure if it was because of the weather (SO COLD) or I was down because both Brooke and Knox were gone for a while (I always get sad about that and I’m not sure that will ever change) or because I was feeling burned out because of 2019 running. I knew I needed a break because I just wasn’t excited to run. During my training cycles I have days like that too but at those times I know that I just need to get out there because I’ll feel better once I get moving and the rest of my day will be better because of a run but this last week… I just knew the rest of my day would feel better by not running ha. I’m all about routines but I knew I needed a few days to sleep in and then wake up and go ski or paint or hit the stair climber if I felt like it.
Remember, running isn’t our job or something we have to force. You can take a break whenever you need to build up your love again. Running is always ready for us when we are ready for it. Now I feel ready to get at it again (probably with lower mileage for a month or two) and I’ll continue to take days off when I need to. The elites take breaks each year so we should to!
Skye and I got a bunch of errands done and she was so happy she got the Costco receipt with the smiley face on it because usually she has the big kids to compete with to get it.
She did an incredible job hiding at one of the stores in the clothes racks.
The only person that does not get a mix-in at Coldstone. How someone could pass up mixing a brownie there, I do not know.
I’m decisioned out, ha. How does my sister do all of this?
The worst part about yesterday was Skye found the smallest lego ever and stuck it up her nose. Luckily, it was very easy to get out and we didn’t have to go to the doctor but we had a good talk about never doing that again!
What was your best run from last week? Worst run?
What are your Sunday plans?
When was the last running break that you took?
