Rest Day Yesterday

Yesterday was a rest day; today is a move day.

The good news about yesterday is that my legs felt normal for the first time in weeks after a run. Immediately after the run on Wednesday, I still had slight spaghetti legs, but that went away after an hour or so, and Thursday, my legs felt as normal as they ever feel. Today, I’m ready to run.

Rest days are super important. In my experience, having a day of rest between workouts has helped me keep from injuring myself during my runs, and allowed me to make some great progress and reach new levels of fitness in a relatively short period of time.

I’m looking forward to tonight’s run to see how it is. I’m hoping for some improvements in speed and in ease. We’ll see how it goes.
