You will observe that there is NO REST DAY this week. This is abnormal, and also generally a big no-no. It’s an exception. Because I had two unexpected rest days last week, and for purposes of spreading out the time commitment, I moved my Tuesday swim to Monday. I’ve got a couple Habitat related phone calls on Monday and Tuesday nights, so this just makes my life a little less hectic. Starting next week I’ll be back to the normalcy of a scheduled full day of rest. So don’t get on my case – I know just as well as this guy that rest days are the most important.
This week I will also be starting to follow some serious food rules. The rules are tailored to the next 9 weeks of training (the remainder of the 10 week “base phase”). More on that to come tomorrow.
For now, have a restful Sunday night and DON’T FORGET TO DOWNTON! Unless you’re smart and savvy enough to have streamed it months ago instead of being a slave to the delayed stateside broadcast. I am not. So I’m super jazzed.
P.S. I would be remiss as a proud Disco-er if I did not mention the other biggie on TV tonight, the Redskins playoff game against the Seahawks happening right now as I type. We in the DiscoRunner household are not Skins fans, but we are of course watching, and I do appreciate anything that helps build a little extra Disco pride around these parts!
