Jeff’s Post – A Rest Day for the Shoes and Treadmill!

3 Days until Baltimore and today is a planned rest day.  This is a day my shoes and treadmill have been begging for :) – I’m not a fan of days off or resting so I’m doing it for them.  I woke up this morning at 5am.  I can’t remember the last time I woke up that late during the week.  I would normally be running at this time but instead I’m sitting on the couch legs propped up writing this post – just a strange feeling.  Although I don’t like it I’m already feeling the benefit of my taper weeks and a few Sunday rest days.  My legs feel strong and the nagging ache in my right foot is almost gone.

I have a short run planned for Thursday (around 3.5 miles) and then will be taking another day off on Friday.

Have a great day and go ahead and take a day off if you need it!
