Wedding week is here! (And I’m still running!)

Hi everyone! T minus 2 days until the wedding week events start to kick off and I’m feeling so happy and thankful that my body feels injury free and energized going into all the fun!
I took yesterday off from the workout because I was feeling pretty run down, and it was definitely the right thing. I did the 6k this morning instead and it was great! I felt that old familiar “I could run forever!” around mile 3 and that was a huge boost.
As the wedding approaches it’s nice to reflect on things during the runs, and get into the spirit of this time (easier to do when I have some space from my to-do list!).
What is everyone doing for cardio days? For me, I’ve been taking them as pseudo rest days. I say pseudo because I bike for around 30 minutes in a regular day (not as designated workouts, it’s just how I get around) so I do get the technical minutes in but I think overall that biking adds up and my body could use a rest day once a week instead.
In terms of my mantra from last week’s lesson, I have to admit I’ve been doing more visualizing about my wedding during the runs than anything else. I do generally come back to a feeling of gratitude though, an appreciation that I’m lucky to have a body that can do this at all. not really a mantra, but it has been really motivating for me!
