I haven’t lost more than a couple days at a time due to injury in many years. I attribute a lot of my success as a runner to remaining healthy, and I attribute my health in part to taking planned breaks from running consistently. It’s not exciting, but I think it’s important to show what downtime looks like, so here we go.

Monday: 0 miles
Tuesday: 0 running miles, quite a bit of walking in airports carrying a 20+ lb baby + trying to wrestle him on two separate flights.
