2019-06-06 - Listen to your body

anna bday runBaby Goat here!

If you've followed along with me at all... You know I was STRUGGLING to get my butt out the door after our never ending winter. So now I've got good news, and I've got realistic news. The good news is... the better weather and longer days really did put a SPRING in my step. I've been getting in my miles, getting the ol' tush out the door, and the running fire is re-lit! The realistic news? When things are going good its easy to go overboard! I put in a hard effort long run on Sunday, and followed it up with two more hard efforts. Do you know where this story is headed? Me too. Yesterday I woke up (on Global Running day no less!) and my body wasn't just telling me I needed the day off, it was screaming. Instead of pushing through it and getting out there so I didn't ruin my streak, I took the much needed day off. Listen to your body, it knows you best! The rest and recovery days are just as important as the hard efforts!

Baby Goat, an admittedly (not quite as) obsessed runner happy I took the break so I can get back out there today.

P.S.: OBERUN 5K IS OVER 80% FULL! Don't miss the hottest Summer Solstice party of 2019! We can't think of a better way to celebrate summer than a 5K dash to a beer garden serving up cold Bell's Oberon! Pair this summer favorite with a bottle opener finisher's medal, a finisher's pint glass, a sweet shirt, food trucks, board games and live music! Join us in Ypsilanti, MI on June 21, 2019 in Ypsilanti, MI.
