Taking a deferred rest day

I was plain exhausted this morning and quickly decided not to run. I figured that since I only took one rest day after my race, I was entitled to another this week. It wasn't a hard decision to make. It's an opportunity cost scenario: What's worth more to a tired runner, an incremental run or another day to recover? I wouldn't say my guilt meter is at zero for skipping my workout.  But it's pretty low.

  1. Mine was sluggish today too. I finished the 5 but the body was resisting along the way.

  2. Sometimes a day's rest does more more for us than a day's run. That's what I tell myself to assuage my guilt.
