I am just going to come out and say it.
I ran this morning.
Yesterday I needed a break. Mentally, physically. I think most importantly I needed to break my “streak.” Thanks to my type-A brain, I couldn’t just let it be. Instead of just recognizing I needed a mini break and taking it, I had to make a plan. So I did…
By the afternoon yesterday, I already felt better. I knew that my streak was over, I felt the pressure lifted. Whatever has been hanging out in my chest was beginning to break up and I was started to feel better overall as well.
So when I woke up this morning, felt good and WANTED to start my day off with a run, I did.
Workout of the Day: 4 miles with random speed intervals of 800 meters to 400 meters. 34+ minute total
I felt a little guilt, because I told you all that I would be taking a couple days off. But honestly, I felt like the most important thing for me was getting my sweat on this morning.
Maybe as I head into the New Year . . . one of my GOALS should be to be more relaxed, more free, and more sporadic. Because without the pressure, I felt pretty good today :).
Question of the Day: Have you ever taken a break from taking a break?
