I plan on making this week a light week, running-wise. As you can see from last week's mileage on the entry that I posted yesterday, I have been running hard and fast and a lot of miles. (Not super fast or anything, but definitely faster than I anticipated at 20 weeks pregnant.)
Because of the mental aspect of pregnancy that I am currently dealing with (don't really want to chat too much about it), I am exhausted. Legs are good, legs want to keep running, but brain does not allow me to wake up in the morning for a good AM workout. That exhausts me. Just the thought. So I definitely want to try to ease up a little bit. Still get nice SOLID workouts in, every day, still RUN everyday, but limit it a little bit more.
I am continuing to work through my mental barriers and I will continue to do so. I think that is the only option that I have right now.
Over the weekend, I made a new recipe for breakfast! I made just four servings of it, and ate one that day, but the others I am eating this week, with the last one tomorrow.
Do you ever take a light week for your mental state rather than because you are injured?
