Although taking an extra rest day and missing a long run was ROUGH, I have to say I am extremely proud of myself for listening to my body (and all of the SMART runners who reminded me I should take the time off). I still ran 27.5 miles this week AND I am ecstatic to report, my hamstring feels A MILLION TIMES better! Now, I haven't tried to run on it yet so I don't know how it will feel when I head out later this afternoon for a short run, but the discomfort I was feeling since Thursday morning seems to be gone! 

How were your workouts this past week?

That's true! Sometimes you only need to listen to your body. Mine says I need to take a rest, and destiny was telling the same to me yesterday, when I went to the swimming pool and I've discovered that timetable has changed and it was closed. So, no swimming for me, but it was good to rest.
For now this week is an easy one, I'm still listening to my body and I think I need one more day of rest.
