Run postponed :(

My body needed more sleep, more rest. Yesterday evening, I decided to turn off my morning run alarm clock :(

Apparently, my superhero batteries need more charging.

I am scared of breaking schedule, as previously it leed to bad things. If my body will be ok and my mind desperate, I may go for an evening run. For sake of not breaking Mon-Wed-Fri schedule. However, if my body will be still in 'No' zone, I'll run tomorrow and Saturday.

Happy running to all of you!

Well, you listened to your body, Iga, and that is good! I am having a 2-day break myself, after my whizzy 5K on Sunday and 5.5k on Tuesday, have decided my legs need a little recharging before my next run. Going to do Pilates tomorrow instead of a run.

So, early night to bed tonight and a run tomorrow then? That sounds like a good plan. 😀

Take care,

Will see how it will go. My legs are surprisingly tired and heavy today.

I will set alarm clock for tomorrow and will see how I feel.

Sympathies! If I wanted to count the number of plans and strategies I’ve made that have gone askew - I’d be here all day. Someone once said to me that goals are ‘directional’ - not necessarily to be achieved. So long as your compass is set right, Iga, you will keep moving in the right direction ...

I decided to take another rest day, as I still feel weak :( I did some stretching and very little strength training today instead.

I have the same routine (M,W,F) but the snow disrupted it, which was a little frustrating. But I planned a new schedule to keep on track. I will return to my previous runs as soon as they can be adequately synched. Keep on track.

I'm trying. I run through the snow. Runs were my superpowers, my mental fight that is saying 'I am strong, I am healthy, I am indestructible'. Now, when I allowed myself to skip one run, I feel like my body is giving up to that illness that was trying to get me for quite some time. But each run was just sweating it out, leaving me healthier and stronger.

Today, I feel like crap :( So I'm not sure if I run tomorrow. Oh, running god's give me strength and power to get out there tomorrow morning.

I totally not going to run when my head and body are saying no ,8weeks ago I was doing no exercise what so ever ...

My run was scheduled for Tuesday ...Body and soul said no !

I am not going to push myself to the limits when I don't feel like it ?

I am doing this for enjoyment not to punish myself

I don't remember run that I didn't enjoy. I know long time ago I had a few like that. Now, I may be struggling, but at the end of each run I feel so amazing, so empowered, my soul is healed.

I know when both body and soul say no. Then there is no argue. But when only body is saying no... This is different story for me.
