And so, with the training cycle almost over and still one long run left on the plan, there is only one thing to do. Rest. As in, BACK OFF. Not sit around like a slug completely. But do something else. So the 5 miles on the plan for today will be done on the elliptical. And maybe not even all at once. I could do 3 in the morning and the rest later. Or just not even go this morning and just do it all later.
Who knows. Who cares. Is my training really going to be completely derailed if I skip one day? NO. It might even be better for it. This is definitely one of those listen to my body (and mood) moments and it is saying BACK OFF.
