I did a lot of rest days this week. After my 8.5 and 20 miles on Saturday/Sunday of the last weekend, my shins and feet were pretty sore. Since I knew travel to Florida was in my near future, along with packing, getting myself ready, plus a race on Saturday morning AND night, I decided to give myself a bit of a 'break' during the week. 

Traveling always wipes me out, plus I didn't know how running in the AM with a very early wake up call and then again at night, which would lead to a very late bed time, would affect me. I know that if my body feels too tired and worn down, I'm going to get sick, so I'd rather rest it up a little extra when needed, so I can keep up the long miles when the training plan requires it.

The weekend was fantastic, and I loved getting to meet so many new people, as well as those I've interacted with on blogs/twitter/instagram. I'll talk more about all of it in a Wine and Dine weekend recap (which will be sooner than some of my extremely late race recaps... ugh! I can't seem to catch up). It was a wonderful experience overall (minus the pouring rain for pretty much the ENTIRE race...).

How was your week/end? Did training go well? 

P.S. Make sure to review your race(s) on, and join us for #BibChat tomorrow night at 8pm CT.
