Rest Day

Yesterday was too much. Too many hills, too big of hills, too long running.

I spent yesterday evening laying on the couch watching the SF Giants beat the Arizona Cardinals, feeling completely wiped out. My legs ached and I was quickly getting stiff. During the night I decided that I had just done too much yesterday with my run and I needed to rest today. I was really sore when I first rolled out of bed, but yoga helped loosen the muscles. 

Lesson learned.

  1. Don't wear yourself out (or get burned out) This is a distance event you are training for...not a sprint. The anology applies to your training. You have 4 months to still train, you don't need to do it all right now. Keep the mantra "Slow and steady wins the race" in your mind.
