“Rest Please!” That was my body talking. My hips have been hurting since my long run on Sunday. Since then, I did yoga + core work Monday, 40 min of intervals on the bike + core work Tuesday, and a 3-mile run Wednesday.
But then my body spoke up. My hips are still hurting, and my run wasn’t so great. 3-mile runs have become easier for me now, but yesterday’s three miles were downright hard!
So what does that mean? It means I have to take an unplanned rest day today. I’m going to stretch out my hips and pout. I hate skipped-workout guilt. It’s okay; I’ll get over it. I know my body needs the day off, but it still stinks.
Speaking of workouts, this is the plan for the coming weeks…
That’s it for workouts, but for those of you who read my little rant about the lack of fruit/veggies at office parties yesterday, this is what was at the office. Yes, that’s cake next to biscuits and gravy.
I tried to hold off from the extra food, but yesterday was a hungry day. This happened. Nope. No guilt. Just grains.
- Ever feel guilt with unplanned rest days?
- Are you good about listening to your body?
