Happy Sunday! This week was quite odd as I was in California then traveled home after being gone most of the month. I wasn’t sure how I would feel after Tinkerbell, and if I’m being honest, the answer is VERY burnt out on running.
So, I did what I felt my body needed…and I didn’t run. Genius, I know. I didn’t run for six days, and when I DID finally run, it was slow and I hated every step of it. I am hoping to get my mojo back in time for Princess next month, then I am taking a distance break.
Here is what this week looked like, day by day:
Sunday: Tinkerbell half marathon
Monday: walked around the parks all day
Tuesday: rest/travel day
Thursday: 20 minutes elliptical
Friday: 30 minutes stationary bike
Saturday: 3.1 mile run
I mentioned last week that I pulled my back at the airport. It has been slowly getting better, but yesterday after my run it really started bothering me again, so I will probably lay off the running until it’s healed.
I have also been using this sunscreen from Skin Authority, I like it because it doesn’t have any dyes or fragrances in it, and it also moisturizes as it protects.
QOTD: How soon do you go back to running after a race?
