The foxgloves are in full bloom right now and I did spend some time weeding, of course. It was nice having a relaxing long weekend. Next weekend is a goal half marathon. My goals had changed from the original goal earlier this year. I still think I'll pull out a solid half marathon time even with the 8 weeks off of running because of the broken kneecap. Then marathon training (and vacation) come pretty soon.
Taking this Sunday completely as a rest day was also a test of the marathon training plan I'm going to use. And? I don't like it! Cross training is encouraged on the training plan and I would not mind having the time on a sunday to go cycling. It completely limits when i could trail run. I really like a short easy trail run after a long run. When training gets heavy though, I really do need a complete rest day. I will need to think about changing around the plan but won't get a good feel for that until i start it. Meanwhile, York firmly believes in rest days preferably with sun.
