Indulging

I knew I would be tired this week so I'm cutting back to let myself recover. I've never been able to do this in a "planned," guilt-free manner before. I feel great! I put in 9 hours last week, which my body is not used to (yet). The last 2 days, I've been sleeping a lot and eating lots of ice cream. And it feels so good.

My downfall is choc. Dibs ice cream! Mmmm! Especially after a hot run!

9 hours this week! Good job on the work outs! I'm tapering for a half marathon and going crazy!

Great job on your last week of workouts.

Never under estimate the importance of planned recovery or some good ice cream.

ice cream..oh nuts..that's one thing i am not eating until i am race 3 weeks from now ;)..

good stuff though..i have been getting 8-9 hr of sleep everyday. Makes a lot of difference to give the body some rest.

Summer = ice cream! They go hand in hand! I have a hard time not doing things too, but if I 'plan' it into my stuff to get done, I tend to be better at relaxing.
