Day off recovery

Today I took off from work just in case I was sore or whatever. I am glad I did. I slept in, went on a walk, cleaned and hung out with Sirius. It was amazing. I think all weekends should be 3 days and all work weeks should be 4 days! Yeah, I don't see that happening either. I can dream though!

I think tomorrow after work I am going to try to go for a run. The walk felt great today and I think a run will be good for me. Plus, I need to continue with my runs despite how nice it would be to take a few weeks off. I know I am a little burnt out on running, however, I want to really work on my speed and try to get some good 5ks and 10k PRs this summer. Hopefully shorter, faster runs will keep me energized than the longer, slower ones that I am burnt out on.

Anyone else get burnt out on running?
I love to run, but 3 1/2 marathons in 12 weeks and the higher mileage left me feeling really tired and sometimes dreading my runs that I knew I needed to do.

What do you do to re-energize your love for running?
I am hoping doing shorter, faster runs will help me get a new perspective.

What are your favorite runs to do?
I used to love to do the long and slow, but I also like the hill workouts. However, I think a few speed workouts will do me some good!

  1. Uhhh I get burnt out pretty much weekly. Too bad I'm reg'd for races through the end of the year. Oh well! I'd rather run and hate it than not be able to at all - does that make sense?
