Hi there! So Zach is doing this new HILARIOUS thing where he laughs (at himself mostly) in a snorty chuckle. TOO FUNNY. Take a look:
OK, so I also wanted to update you on how my Blog/Run-a-Day-cember went. I will admit. Blog-a-Day did NOT pan out exactly as I had planned, aka I did not blog every day. Eh. Sorry! BUT, I DID run EVERY day of December! Woot! The worst one I can remember was on Christmas. I did NOT feel like running, it was hella cold and hilly. So I banged one out. One counts! So, my total for the month of December was 31 days= 130 miles! WOW! That equals 5 marathons! wooohooo! I was excited about this. I took a day off today. Honestly for me rest days are SO much harder than working out. It is definitely a mental thing. I gain so much mentally from working out that I just don’t like giving that up, but physically I recognize how important it is. Especially since I am going to have to start doing a long run a week. Up until now since the baby has been born, the longest I have run is 6. I am signing up for a half marathon through Central Park on my birthday in April, so I am going to have to get longer runs in…soon! Point is, in order to stay healthy (and keep my shin in tact which unfortunately has been acting up a bit lately) I needed to take a rest day today and will have to start implementing a weekly one. Anyway, do tell me: How often do you take a rest day from working out?
