Don’t Beat Yourself Up on Off Days

Yesterday was a scheduled day off from the C25K program, but I had morning aspirations of getting a run in.  As it turned out, we needed to complete our Halloween decorating.  Fun times (although I could not believe stores having Christmas displays up the day BEFORE Halloween -whatever happened to Thanksgiving?), but by night’s end I had it stuck in my head that I should have done that run.  I need to avoid that thinking because it’s a trap that will ruin my willpower eventually.  If I did run, it would have been a bonus, if I didn’t, I was not supposed to anyway.  Here’s a good article with reminders why rest days are important:

4 Reasons Why Rest Days Are Important

Will be looking to push a little harder today to work some of tonight’s candy calories off in advance.

See you on the road!
