A Bright Rest

1 Comment

The weather forecast for today called for clouds and snow this morning. I woke to bright sunshine and not a cloud in the sky. Since I ran my long run yesterday, today is an active rest day. Nothing hard, just a 3 mile walk. What a beautiful day to walk too. I first thought I wish I had kept to my schedule, it would have been much better to run outside on a morning like today. Soon into my walk I was glad I was walking. I could take in all that surrounded me, looking up and looking around. Running is not as conducive to looking around, risk of falling is much higher. While it was cold, the wind was calm and the views picturesque.

Not everything goes as forecasted, and what a blessing that is. Today reminded me that my active rest day is a day to take it easy and take in all around me. Six days a week are filled with hard training and business. One day to regenerated and rest is a good thing. Having sunshine in the middle of winter on a rest day is a great thing.

I want to encourage everyone to follow your passions, not just what is easy. It is in overcoming hurdles and barriers that we truly test our limits and abilities. There is much more we are capable of if we only believe in ourselves.
