Active rest

As I am back on a training plan for my first half marathon of the year (Edinburgh Rock ‘n Roll), I need to learn to take my rest days seriously again. So I did yesterday and also decided to make it a digital-free day. Kind of like a cleanse. 🙂

Well, of course, the day didn’t quite pass without thinking about running. I joined a walk group that organized a walk close by where I live and did a circular 8-mile loop across the river and back. Now, this may sound boring, but I never ventured to the other side of the river (I live on the pretty side! :)), so I thought this may be a good opportunity to scoop out a new 8-mile loop.

Well, the loop didn’t make my list.

The path on the other side of the river was primarily through residential and industrial streets until it hit a main road with congested traffic.

I rather continue along my river running out and backs or looping into the park. No reason to stray. See for yourself.

One Response to “Active rest”

  1. It’s great that you are so motivated! I wonder if a digital free day is just what I need to make me more excited about my own runs…though since I am not brave enough to run outside in this cold weather, I must use a treadmill which would essentially eliminate the digital-free-ness of it all!
