|(very) Cross Training.|
I've had very little time off during 2010 having almost gone from race to race with very little rest and since coming back from my most recent race in Gibraltar I was more or less straight back into training and thinking about the next race. Rather than worry about my ribs I look at this injury as a guilt free reason to do nothing and by finding the positive in a sometimes negative situation you stay mentally strong. Maybe guilt free is the wrong term to use for taking a break but for me I always like to do what I can do and if I feel up to training I train as you never know what the next day might bring. My theory is rest days will happen rather than needing to plan them and I'm really glad I made the effort to run last Monday in the snow.
