What I’m Feelin’ Friday #2

Alright alright alright 😉 Time for another what I’m feelin’ Friday!  Hope everyone’s week was awesome! By the time this post publishes I’ll be coming home from Napa so stay tuned for some travel posts. 🙂

This Friday it’s all about rest and relaxation. Rest usually falls by the wayside when I’m trying to do all the things that’ll help me reach my running goals. So I strategically have to plan rest and I do that by having things around that force me to chillax. Let’s jump right into it shall we?

#1 The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls may be my favorite book ever. And I read A LOT. Talk about a page turner!  I could not wait to get into bed early to read this one.  It’s a memoir about the author’s unconventional, poverty-stricken upbringing but is told with a lighthearted, funny spin. This book was one shock factor after another. Be sure to curl up after a long run with this one!

#2 Wicked Plush Throw from L.L. Bean

I don’t know what happened, but when I turned 30 I became OBSESSED with L.L. Bean.  I remember getting the catalog in my 20’s and thinking, “who the heck would buy this boring crap?” Oh how foolish we are in our 20’s.  I absolutely LOVE curling up with this blanket and watching TV by the fire.  It’s incredibly soft, large, and VERY warm! Even my dog Tadd loves it 🙂

#3 Massages

I have been getting massages for years now. I 100% credit them with keeping me injury free for the past few years. I have aches and pains here and there, but when I get a massage and ask for extra work on a specific spot, it definitely makes it better. I highly suggest you read this article from www.strengthrunning.com for more information such as when to get a massage and other options if it isn’t in your budget.

Alright gang, what are YOU feeling this Friday? Do any of you have to schedule rest?
