This week and next find me engaging in "active rest". For me, that means little to no running but lots of cross training, hiking, stretching and rolling. My body needed a break and was letting me know that if I didn't give it one, it would just take one. So, no running until November 1st. Next week I will also be taking a technology break. No internet, computer, television, etc. It's time to refresh mind and body before I embark on my next phase of base building.
Have you ever taken a break from your workout and/or running routine? How'd it go? Did you have any issues when you restarted?
