It’s that time of the week again! That’s right, y’all! It’s Workout Wednesday!
The irony of the last couple of weeks is that Wednesday has become my rest day with all of my half marathon training. That’s right — Workout Wednesdays minus the Workout. (Insert Kanye shrug here.) I’ve been playing an insane amount of volleyball, plus the half marathon training, plus the new job; I’ve been one tired woman! Fortunately, the training plan requires rest, because around Tuesday evening, I start to feel like maybe I’m overexerting myself, and I know I would push myself too hard — potentially injuring myself. Tonight, I went to check out this bizarre movie, Maze Runner, with a friend. (I can’t really tell you what it was about, because I don’t really know.) My knees and lower back are so happy that I did!
Being a newbie runner, I haven’t actually participated in any race more than once (yet). It’s actually weird to think about, but it’s true. I don’t have a favorite race (yet). I will say, however, that I really enjoyed the 5K FoamFest obstacle course race I did back in July. It was fun, yet super challenging. I wasn’t really prepared for the actually running part of the race (the most important part, I know), but it really pushed me, and I got to run it with great friends! Hopefully I’ll have a bunch more races under my belt at this point next year, and I’ll have a better answer!
What’s your favorite race? How do you spend your rest days?
