While in theory a 5k should be 30 minute of exercise a day...easy. Well....I believed in rest days prior and now I REALLY believe in them. Your body needs rest in order to push.
Compression sleeves/socks ROCK - I have worn them after running to help aid recovery. At the beginning of the month I didn't wear them and my legs were feeling sluggish and heavy...now after wearing them, they feel so much better.
Hydration...hydration...hydration. Enough said.
Running in the early am is so much easier/ better than running later in the day.
Running everyday, means lots of extra laundry! (and smelly laundry, too)
Running everyday provided me a stress relief. I enjoyed it. That said I am really looking forward to taking tomorrow off and then really getting into training for my half marathon the end of August.
My last run this am...I just ran for fun, I didn't look at my time. I ran fast without pushing too much. I was actually pleased with my time. I felt like I could have run further...but I didn't! :)
