I took yesterday off running as I said in my post yesterday. It was a busy day anyway and I honestly would not have had time to run until evening, so it worked out.
I am actually considering taking today off also. I woke up this morning and was still sore all over. This week is way off from my running plan anyway and so I may as well take advantage of my time and rest today and begin fresh tomorrow.
I am trying not to over analyze the situation in which I find myself.
Slowly but surely I am recovering and I hope and pray that this time off will be just what I need. I must admit the difficulty of taking a few days off while training for a marathon in 2.5 months. However my long runs have gotten shorter and more difficult and even my daily runs aren’t easy, so I figure my body needs this time to heal and get whole again.
Thank you for the emails and comments.
Encouragement is always a good thing and appreciated!!!
