Since I'm taking some time off to heal my foot (which is doing so much better), I am trying to enjoy my time that have now have "extra". When I got home last night, I started to prep dinner. I made hamburgers (yes, finally with real cow) and had left over salad from the Russian dinner.
I'm getting use to the salad now. It's not too bad. I just relaxed (while icing and elevating my foot) all night. Wow, did it feel good! It's weird, because last night, even if I could, I wouldn't have worked out. It was a rest night. But this morning, was a mandatory rest morning. It felt so good to sleep in (until 6).
I'm doing all I can to rest up (staying off my feet as much as possible included) because I want to be back to the normal routine by Monday. I have 10 1/2 miles on schedule (trading my long run day to hang out with a friend on Saturday).
When you take mandatory rest days (or mornings), how do you relax?
