no running for 2 weeks for me. taking time off will be hard. it's been a part of my (almost) everyday since january and i hate the fact that i will lose some of that conditioning and have to start a few steps back on that next run. but it's trainers orders and it's part of the recovery process to avoid injury. so i'm giving my shoes a break.
this week i'm going for a more balanced diet of protein and carbs. it was a carb feast for me the last few days. pasta, bread, bagels, rice. it sounds great but i wasn't used to eating like that anymore. i actually put on a few pounds, which is normal but uncomfortable. nothing a 1,500 calorie burn from a half marathon can't fix.
