Today is a rest day! For most people, this would sound kind of fantastic. To a runner…not so much! I get edged out, anxious, tired and just a bit crazy. I know it’s all part of the plan and rest is just as important as the actual running.
I’m working on cutting down my sugar intake a bit. Self proclaimed sugar junky! I may have issues with jelly beans! Nerds jelly beans with bumps are by far the best! Anyway, I’m trying to clean things up and get leaned out a bit before springtime. I keep telling myself that leaner will mean faster! Not that it matters that much but I do enjoy improvement.
I’ve returned to the gym as well. In order to keep this train a rolling throughout the next year, I have to stay away from injury. The best way to stay away from injury, maintain muscle mass! Especially on an “older” frame…lol! It felt good going back to my gym. I needed the break to just enjoy the great weather we had this whole summer and fall. Sometimes the break can do wonderful things!
Today was a full 10 hour workday and it’s time to put some protein into the body! “Feed the Machine” is what I tell people all the time. Enjoy your evening peeps! I’ll do my best to actually rest. 🙂
