I have not run since last Tuesday. Today is Monday. This is the longest I’ve gone without running since, well, not that long ago. I was sick between Christmas and New Year’s of this past year – not sick enough to not lift weights (which I did), but too under the weather to move around quickly.
Every once in awhile, I have to remind myself it’s okay to relaaax.
See, I like to stay on course, not veer from my routine, not break streaks. I’m a leetle anal. I tend to blow things out of proportion, like thinking if I take a day off from running I’ll lose all the progress I’ve made, or if I go over my allotted calories for the day I’ll gain 10 pounds overnight. You know, very LOGICAL things that very NORMAL people think.
Change of plans today. On what would have normally been Long Run Pancake Sunday, I took a yoga class instead.
My sister Jaaron took this pic of me afterwards doing my best “tree pose.” Don’t I look just like a tree? By the way, those sun beams are real.
