I was seriously craving yoga this week for some reason!
(Saw this at Pier 1 and I think I need to go back and buy it…I’m totally obsessed with it!)
My neck is feeling better, but unfortunately I tested it by not taking my muscle relaxers yesterday and of course by last night it immediately tightened up and starting hurting : (
I’m actually a little disappointed with my lack of running recently, but with training starting soon for a busy fall race schedule I figure it’s ok to give myself a bit of a running break now!
I’m looking forward to the 2-3 weeks I have of unstructured running before marathon season starts. And yes, you should absolutely go back to Pier 1 for that.
Haha, I know…I am SO tempted to go back and buy it! I’m just trying to decide if I like it $40 much…
$40?! Wait for a good coupon.
I don’t like that my break from running is injury induced, but I’m actually enjoying doing different things. I try to run once a week to see how my knee is doing, but I like the change in workouts. Maybe I just needed to focus on weights and yoga after all this running.
Yes, I agree, it’s totally different when you’re forced to take a break because of an injury. I’m taking some time to focus on yoga for a bit before I jump into another round of marathon training – I think my body will appreciate the break in the long run! (no pun intended!)
Wow that is a lot of yoga. At this point I don’t crave any other work out, just running at this point.
I try to take one day off a week but sometimes I exceed that lol
Haha, yeah I did do a lot of yoga this week! I think it’ll be good for my body to take the break from running before I head into training for my fall marathons!
So sorry to hear you are still struggling with your neck. I haven’t taken a break from running too many times, but generally it is a week or two after really hard races (like Dopey Challenge). My next big race isn’t until August, so I am taking a little break from hard training and will just enjoy training with my group.
I need to sit down and start putting together my training plans for all my fall races so I can figure out when I need to start get my butt in gear again!
I think it’s good to take a break if you have an injury fo shizzle. I do crave different exercises – so I try to listen to my body. I really needed the yoga it was craving this past weekend!
It’s funny how our bodies tell us what we need (if we’re listening!).
I’m sorry your neck is still bothering you. Injuries can be so frustrating.
