I have had some slight knee pain and tiredness this week so I have been taking it easy. The nice part about running for fun?? I don't have to stress if I miss a day. The other nice part?? I MISS IT!! All of you with Marathons in the next few weeks, I have serious ENVY... But that was the whole point.. After my MANIAC 3 Marathons in 3 months, including a BQ performance, I was BURNT OUT! I needed this time to just RUN with no pressure.. And wow oh wow has it worked!! I have done pretty well at keeping my base mileage up with 20-35 miles per week, but I have not been killing myself. With all that has happened in LIFE the past month it has proved to be a blessing that I am not in Marathon training.
