First off I think it should be a law that weekends are longer then the work week. Having 4 days off is sweet. I got a lot of little projects done around the house. Got a bunch of exercise in. Got some serious reading done. Nice, very nice.

Since I have been pushing myself quite hard these last couple of days, I decided today would be a rest day and tomorrow the serious work would begin. But, as is typical once I begin pushing myself, I sit here and feel like doing something. I'm thinking I'll just go for an early morning walk. My plantar is bothering me and tomorrow is my regular running day so I don't want to push it. Weights were yesterday and tomorrow so those are out. My bike has something wrong with it. And I've done all my tough aerobic tapes. I'm thinking a walk is where its at. I was reading somewhere the other day that one of the top runners uses walking to kind of squeeze in an extra run sometimes. Which makes sense as it's basically the same motion only many times walking is harder than running, at least for me.

Okay, rambling on trying to make up my mind. I think I'll go, I don't see why not it's only 7 a.m. Plenty of time to walk and still get everything done I want to today.

That's it, I'm off. Have a great Sunday all.

Do you ever do racewalking? It's got the same calorie burn as running (although I think I work harder and burn more!), it's low-impact, and it has the little-heralded side benefit of making your walk breaks faster on races where you would otherwise run.

There are a lot of websites out there that have instructions on racwalking. The only down side is that because it uses different muscles than running, it requires a build period before you go doing big mileage. Otherwise, you'll be hurting in a major way!

Glad to hear the workouts are going well. Hope you had a great walk.

I hope your walk was good. I'm having a little heel problem again, from two days of runningin a row, unusual for me. Get the tennis ball out again, massage, and ice. Hopefully that fixes it for you.
