That is what my body was telling me on Monday but I choose to power through the week then ended up sick & on the couch all day on Friday.

Today I had a productive day. I cleaned the house, started to refinish our leather chair (we will see how that turns out!) and worked on my teaching for summer bible study. It rained for most of the day so I did not get my run in. It was nice to give my body a break- I am sure my dog was happy as well.
Yesterday I was able to train with my marathon partner- my husband, Glenn. Our boys were at a sleep-over so we were able to run together in the morning. We did a familiar…Continue
