Switched up the workouts slightly again this week (mostly the order, not the actual workout). I wasn't feeling well on Monday so spent most of the day snuggled up on the porch with Walt). I also had to go into work early on Wednesday because we went to a friend's daughter's dance recital that started around 5:30pm, so had to get in extra early so that I could leave early and still get in a workout. Thursday we had Growth Group, but still fit in a short run (I was tapering for my half marathon anyway, so four miles wasn't too shabby - wanted to get in 6 miles, but was running about an hour and a half late from work, so couldn't do it all). I moved the biking to Friday so that I could keep Saturday as a complete rest day, since I knew I wanted to go 'all out' on the Rock N Roll Half Marathon on Sunday (don't worry there will be a recap coming soon). 

I am planning on taking the next couple weeks semi-easy. I have a couple races coming up, but they are fun ones (Color Me Rad on this Saturday and a sprint triathlon next Saturday). I want to give my body a little rest after yesterday's race. I also have another half in about a month, and even though I am just going to use that as a 'fun run' as well, I still want to make sure my body has a little time to recover between now and then so I don't over do it. Gotta listen to your body!!
