Zero Week

I must say, a planned week from running is like no other!

When I have taken a "vacation" from running in the past, it was due to injury, surgery, sickness, etc. For this break, I am healthy and injury-free! I can take full advantage of this time to rest, relax, and get involved in other activities!

Like lounging in yoga pants and Snooki Slippers... 

On Monday, I spent the first half of the day in bed with my cat, Ginger. We caught up on Vampire Diaries, watched the Perks of Being a Wallflower, and surfed Pinterest for recipes and workouts.

So comfy!!!

I eventually got up to eat lunch and take Alpha for a walk on the trail. Just because I am not running, did not mean I can't enjoy the fall weather!

I am guilty of having a brief trot along the way, but my ankles said "HELL NO!" They were still sore from the marathon run. I took that as a hint to take this resting period very seriously.

On Tuesday I did next to nothing, other than going to work. I did not consider this a bad thing. Everyone is entitled to a second lazy day, right? I spent my time looking up amazing recipes from Skinny Taste, many of which I will make in the next week!

Today, I plan on not being as lazy and going grocery shopping. Though, this is hardly a chore for me. You guys should know by now how much I love buying and especially eating food. :o)

In other news, my fiance has been training for his first 5K!

I don't have a picture of him running, but this picture of him looking excited is just as good!

Just on Monday, Peter ran his first 2 mile distance without stopping. He was so proud of himself and I was thrilled for him...but also jealous because he is running in this lovely weather and I am not! He also did another 2 mile run the following day. His goal is to run 5 miles by the end of the year and I am sure he can do it!


Anyway, happy hump day guys! Hope you are enjoying your week of running!!!

What do you do during a "zero week?" Do you take part in other activities, or take advantage of the lazy time?

Do you spend countless time on Pinterest? What are your favorite things to pin?

Has your significant other decided to take up running since you seem to enjoy it? Did it make you the happiest person in the world?
