You know you've thought about it. I did it!

50 meters into my recovery run
Aweee yeahhhh. This was the situation the day after my 17 mile run up a hill. My legs were fine. My body was a little sore but I was just plain old tired. My eyes would not stay open. So, I did what I often think about when I running on E: lay down on the side of the road! 

It was awesome. I got back up and ran a little more but called it quits after about 3 miles. I was probably doing my body a disservice. 

I went to bed and woke up feeling much better. I ran 10 easy at 7:30 pace this morning. I just needed some sleep. It happens.

Happy Running!

  1. Love your posts, they, like you, are so much fun... I did once go for a long run and when I got to Kirstenbosch, I lay down on the grass and rested for 45min before running home...
