well earned rest

I love when I have a rest/recovery day that I really need and deserve!  Often it seems my rest days are due to lack of time and they stack up on each other.

Since I've been off from work this week it's been easier to get workouts in.

I exercised at least once at the end of last week, and then I did Insanity on Saturday.  Sunday is a workout itself, just due to my schedule!  Monday was Insanity, Tuesday I ran 3 miles, Wednesday was Insanity again and by yesterday my legs were more than ready for a recovery day.

Recovery consisted of being in a pool with my kids for a total of 5 hours yesterday.  There was some sitting and walking around, a little swimming.  It was just what I needed.

This afternoon I plan to get 3-4 miles in.  Or maybe Insanity.  I'm not sure.  Maybe I'll hit Insanity today and do a longer run tomorrow.  I need to set some goals on my weekly mileage as I work towards getting ready to train for the full marathon and then work Insanity in between.

I really do love what Insanity is doing for my body.  My legs are leaner and more toned and my waist is slightly more whittled instead of just being mush.   I want more!
