Rest days are under-rated

Some days you just know that you’re better off not getting up and running (or going to the gym, or swimming, or whatever floats your boat exercise-wise). Those days become unscheduled rest days and today was one of those days. Blame it on post-dental blues or mid-week blues or I’m-so-sick-of-this-muggy-weather blues but I heeded the message and stayed in bed a little longer, then caught up with Ruth for brekkie at Two Before Ten cafe.

A much better way to start the day!

Random observation: have you noticed that at cafes these days you don’t get mashed but smashed avocado?!

Then later I had a great lunch catch-up with RN before she returns to work next week (woohoo!).

    No they’re not. Rest days are overrated. Anyway, glad you didn’t feel guilty while you enjoyed yours 😉

      No guilt whatsoever. However it’s back into training tomorrow.

    If there is one thing I could definitely get better at it’s resting when I should! Definitely need to listen to your body. As long as it doesn’t become habit and an excuse ya know!? Well done.

      I’m not perfect either when it comes to taking a rest day but I’m slowly learning that its better for me in the long run!
