Value of an occasional extra rest day

Day 96 - Unscheduled rest day

The lack of sleep and high amount of other responsibilities at work, church and family caught up with me and I decided to follow some advice that Kyle Marcotte gave me about not being afraid to take an unscheduled rest day if it was warranted.

I just felt if I squeezed in a brief 60 minute run or bike yesterday it would be pretty counter productive. So with that advice I got a few other things out of the way and got some extra sleep.

Hopefully it will pay off with a bit more zip in my day for Thursday's workout. I plan to see how the knee holds up with a slow, but longer run.
