Rest day today
Today is Sunday. Depending on your beliefs and practices it's either a day of rest or of a duty or practice which may feel like a rest, or it's pretty much a day like any other day of the week . . .
Well, for me, in regards to exercise, it was a rest day. I'd gone out every morning this week for a run - ridiculously early on Wed through to Friday, and for the more civilised 9am start for the local parkrun yesterday. So today was a day of 'resting'.
Although there was a fair amount of washing to get done, some gardening, tidying, nagging kids to do chores, breakfasting, lunching, tidying . . . . . even though it's a rest day, it's still been quite busy, and I've still managed to get nearly 14,000 steps in already and there's still a few hours before bedtime!
Son has said he'll come running with me so I'd better get to bed and get some much needed sleep!
In the meantime, if you want to start running but think you're too out of shape, please consider finding a C25K (Couch to 5K) app that suits you and get started - but do invest in some good running shoes (and a great sports bra ladies, especially larger busted ladies! Shock absorber do a great one that has been my life-saver (and black-eye preventer) many a time!)
