I took a rest day today. And it felt so good. When I looked at last weeks workout regime on Sunday, I realized the body needed a little TLC in the form of a rest day.
After skipping the group run last night to do 30 minutes of weights and 30 minutes of sweaty spinning, these legs appreciated another day without pounding.
Usually, I feel a little guilty and say things to myself like "Maybe I should just go for a short run?" or "I could just do a little weight lifting at home." But not today. Today, the rest felt simply gratifying.
By the way, have you checked out Lisa's 10 Days of Thanksgiving? It's such a clever idea. Each post makes me think of something I'm similarly thankful for. Like the other day, when I saw a homeless person sitting in the rain eating, I said a little prayer and was thankful I have a warm, dry place to sleep and relax because not everyone is so lucky.
Feel free to leave us a link in the comments if you've done a recent Thanksgiving inspired post! I'm feeling a little behind the eight ball in getting into the holiday spirit. It feels like it's crunch time to dig out some Thanksgiving type recipes and cook them simply because it's mid November.
