I want to keep with my streak and run at least a mile each day, even if that is the only thing that I do. If I had thought about it I would have held off & waited until after my race & a few days recovery THEN promoted my running streak. You might think....well, what's the big deal. Stop the streak, then pick back up. True, true. Often when I am issued a challenge, by either myself or others I get
Coming off my frustrating year of running last year I see this running streak as quite attainable. I could easily argue that "only" running 1 mile IS taking it easy. Maybe not true rest. I don't get that anyway. Before I sat down to get this done I vacuumed my entire downstairs. Living room, dining room, front hallway & my bedroom. It took me about 45 minutes. Not because it was that dirty, but because I moved several things like both sofas, the end table, all the dining room table chairs & more. Yeah, how is that resting?!?!?!?! I was all hot & sweaty when I got done & earned (or so I told myself) the two made from scratch mint chocolate chip oatmeal muffins I made yesterday.
I don't think I know how to truly rest & take it easy. I'm just not made to do it very much. That's neither good or bad. It's just me. SO! I ran today 1 mile, taught my cardio class and swam my race distance of 1/2 mile. It was my last swim workout to finish before race & I can't get out of my teaching obligations. Well, I could, but I can handle this. I'm still 6 days away from my race. Still plenty of time to "rest".
No video from today. I kept forgetting. I had to cram a lot into my morning and went from one thing to the next and before I knew it I was flying out the door to get the kids off to school. I did remember to pay attention to my playlist, which is short due to the short run.
