This week is a rest week
I've had two weeks of good running, so I'm taking this week as a rest week to help my body get back to a normal sleep schedule. I ran 3.5 miles this evening along the Jordan River Parkway. I felt pretty good, but I was starting to get tired during the last mile. I've slept better during the past two nights, but it takes time for ones body to recover from sleep deficits. Our bodies needs rest to recover from the stress of running, and older persons, like me, need extra rest. My wakeup heart rate this morning was 53.
