No CF today...

In keeping with the idea that I need to be a whole lot smarter about things than I am being right now... I gave myself an extra hour of sleep last night (first night I've had 7 hours of sleep in a loooong time! woot!) and came straight to school today. I know I have class today after school for three hours and won't make it home until late, so I'm taking it easy on myself. That may be a first... I also know I am going to again have meetings today that will pull me from my class for probably 2 hours, and frustrate me beyond belief. I need to be prepared for those and make sure my head is screwed on straight. I will return to CF tomorrow rarin' to go. :)

It might not be the worst idea to take off more than just one day - especially with a 1/2 marathon coming up. Tapering would probably be pretty helpful. Even if it means just cutting back the CF to a couple less times a week, or cutting back the weight/reps/intensity of the workouts that you do.

Anonymous, I did take yesterday and today off... and I'm thinking of only going two days next week since the race is Saturday... I'm only aiming to finish (that's been my goal all along) but I'm sure it will be much easier to finish without having sore legs! :P

I'm a big believer in listening to your body and playing it smart. Of course, if I could actually listen to my own advice, that would be a start...
