I didn’t do my 6 mile run tonight. I just can’t.
I mean technically I “could.” But I just don’t think I should. My body is saying, “NO!”
I had a horrible night last night. I was up half the night with an upset stomach. Then, today, I just didn’t feel good at certain points during the day. There is a stomach bug going around school. I don’t think I have it but who knows?!?
I just don’t want to risk getting sick or putting myself in danger of lying on the couch all weekend due to illness.
So..I am taking tonight off.
My first time EVER missing half marathon training. I will live. My type – A personality is having a hard time with is but it will get over it eventually.
Besides, I don’t even know if I am going to run the half. I am just training for it just in case.
I’m tired. I didn’t sleep good last night. My tummy hurts. I’m not doing it.
Sometimes we just have to listen to our body. Take a day off. Take a rest. Breathe. Relax.
It will all be OK.
Have you ever had this happen before? Have you ever just KNOWN you need to take a day off from exercise?
