Today was a rest day for me. I did a pretty good job of giving my legs a rest. Part of me just wants to keep going but I understand the importance of giving your legs and body a rest and time to recover.
My son wouldn’t go down for his nap today, so I decided I would lay down with him and cuddle. It was so nice to lay down in the middle of day. I got a quick 15 or so minute nap in and just laid there enjoying the time with him while he napped. Can’t beat a day when you get that opportunity.
I’ve been reading a lot about recover, especially from long runs. During the 5K that I ran in December, there was a local PT place with a booth. They had a hand out that promoted a recovery lounge with Normatec Compression Boots and Sleeves. If any of you have ever used these for recovery, I’d love to hear your thoughts. I’ve been thinking about buying a a package and trying them out after my long runs.
I’m also looking at picking up the travel stick or something similar for recovery and warm ups. If you have one of these, let me know your thoughts.
I’m thinking about running a race this Sunday. It’s a 4 miler. It’s not too far from home and with it being on Super Bowl Sunday, I think it might be a good idea to burn a few calories lol. It would take the place of a long run and I would rest on Saturday instead. I’ll keep you updated if I sign up. Just need to make sure it fits in the schedule with the kiddos.
I’m trying to get a few reviews done and also add a section or two to the site including interviewing other bloggers. Will keep you updated on that. Looking forward to my run tomorrow.
