Every Wednesday, the Deb from Deb Runs will be providing a word about which to blog. Kind of like a nice little blog prompt. Posts can be fitness or health related, but don’t have to be, so really anyone can play along. Just be sure to link up with InLinkz on Deb’s main post, and share the love by reading and commenting on other’s participant’s posts.
Today’s word is ENERGETIC.
This is an easy one for me.
My friends call me “the energizer bunny.”
I never sit still. I hate to be inactive.
Rest days torture me.
I take them because I know that they are good for my old body.
So what do I do on my rest days?
Even when I am super tired, like Monday. I had run 11 miles the day before, got little sleep and worked all day. Then after my speed group work out, I was energized. I went for a walk in the mall after.
Running energizes me? What about you?
And tapering? Don’t get me started. My schedule called for 8 miles the weekend before my half. So I ran 11. I planned to take it easy this week but don’t count on it.
My boundless energy drives my hubby crazy sometimes. He likes to relax at home. Of course, I am always finding things to do. (Lucky I have crazy friends.)
And my friends, too.
On our tennis vacation, they may drive to the courts. I either walk or bike.
And on the beach, they will sleep in the sun. I love the sun but after a while, I will get up and go for a walk.
Is good to be energetic?
I think so.
Just be wary of overdoing. Listen to your body. Reel it in if if makes those around you uncomfortable.
Happy Running! Are you energetic? How do you feel on rest days or tapering?
