I've been trying to run on the trails a little more. I don't know why I've been running on the road so much. Screw that. I am hitting the trails more! I found a bunch of trails that are close to my house. They are no joke either. Straight up hills. As you can tell it's been a little muddy recently. I'll have one more long trail run this weekend before my 5 mile trail race next weekend.
This is my fear. Actually I run fairly confidently (and naively) on the trails so I am more likely to trip over nothing and fall face first. Fingers crossed that doesn't happen next weekend. I'd like to finish looking sorta good.
I seriously hate being so sore that it effects my ability to walk normally. It's rather embarrassing at work. No swagger... all sore right now. Thank goodness for that one solid rest day a week. My body thanks me every Friday.
Also I just made a recent book purchase. I know I am like 8 million years late to read this book. But I finally picked it up and I am pretty excited to get started reading it this weekend.
Do you take a rest day each week?
Triathlon or running book recommendations?
