I’m home back in Boston today from the long holiday weekend. I did a long run today and felt like it was back to business, being in my own area and running the paths that are so familiar to me. I did about 10 and felt okay but my body feels tired. I started getting feedback from a running coach associated with the Baystate marathon. I confessed to him in an email that I’m only taking one day off per week and I worry that I should be taking at least two days off but I feel panicked when I don’t run. I know, not a healthy feeling. It felt good to ‘admit’ it in my email to him, almost like I was admitting I had a problem of much more serious consequences. Regardless, I will await his reply and will take his words to heart.
Tomorrow is Monday and back to business in full force.
