Well, sh*t.

Today I’ve learned something very important about rest days.

TAKE THEM!

Don’t be like me, think you are unstoppable and tweak your right knee five days before your first half marathon while trying to do dips off a bench for your triceps (yes, an exercise that has nothing really to do with your legs). GAH! I can’t even believe it. Sometimes, that voice in your head – the one that tells you that you can do just ONE more push-up, sometimes it just needs to shut the F up. It’s okay to not be perfect, or the person who leaps out of bed every morning ready to take on the world. It’s okay to be the person who sleeps in a little extra to get the rest they need (and have earned!) and doesn’t care that they didn’t push themselves that extra inch or mile. This mentality is especially important before a big event that you have been working your ass off for. I really should be practicing this soliloquy in front of a mirror right now, but hey. What’s done is done, and hopefully time and rest will make up for my own foolishness.

Let’s shift gears to something a little more fun, shall we? I’d love to share with you the playlist that pumped me up during my 11 mile training run on Sunday. I always love finding new music to run to, and so I thought I’d share my current favorites with you! If you don’t like dance/EDM music, then you should check yo’self and give it another shot. When it comes to running or working out, I like to dance in my sneakers for the entirety of the sweat fest.

Hope you like it! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
