I use to have a hard time passing up a run. A sign I’ve matured (just a little) as a runner is my attitude change regarding days off. I’m all for a little time off my feet as long as I know I’ve put in some solid work to warrant a little break. Five days since my last run and decided to take one more day off. I was fighting a stomach flu for two days and actually feel really good today. The mountain trails must be really fun right now. I look out from my patio and can picture all the mud, the flowing streams, and the snow that were the result of heavy rain, but it can wait another day. I think I’ll pamper myself with a massage instead and drink some boba. While I rest I’m planning a few runs that connect my normal trails to those in the Angeles backcountry. Feeling very inspired.
