Running rest day. I'm learning quickly how rest days are as, or even more, important than the actually running days to my body. I needs it. Needs it bad.
However, today I'm beginning a new phase in my overall training: working muscle groups other than my legs. I've been reading a lot about how important and often overlooked the upper-body is with new runners (especially back and shoulders as key elements in the running motion) and some of my running blog friends already have wonderful all-body workouts fit into their schedules. So I'm giving it a go. I'll be doing sets of push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, hicc-ups and probably even some shut-ups. Oh, and I've been challenged to do pilates. We'll see how that goes.
Anyway, I have a nice run lined up for tomorrow and I can't wait.
