I HAD A REST DAY. This is the first rest day of 2015.

I decided that I wasn’t human and sometimes, it’s okay to have a rest day. Work takes up 11 hours of my day before I even think about exercise and blogging. I was burning out.

By the time Saturday came around, I had to stay back late at work as one of my staff had gone home sick so I had to pick up the workload, so I didn’t get home until an hour later than planned. I was exhausted.

I had already been thinking about working a rest day into my schedule. This next week is going to be mental and I know there’s going to be one this week, too. It’s a busy week at work, I have a Wedding to attend I’m a little worried about getting my long run in.

I ran 10 miles on Wednesday. I could have ran 11 miles today, but I had 6 blog posts to write, my room to clean and washing to do. I really wanted to get an 11 miler, a 12 miler and a 13 miler in before my half. But realistically, I’m only going to have time for 1 or 2 more long runs.

This week, I’ll be running Friday or Saturday morning. My work schedule is insane this week and includes a 3am start. I’m a little worried about how my training plan is going to be since I don’t know how much sleep I get and how long I’m going to be at work yet.

I’d die for a 9-5 job right now.

How’s your week been?

    Having a rest day will only do you good both mentally and physically, so no need to worry about having them!
    Do you do yoga classes or just by yourself?

    Btw what kind of job do you have!? It sounds insane!
