So today I needed to take a rest day. It has been 9 days since my last rest day. Last week I logged 70+ miles of running and 55 miles on the spin bike. In less than 2 weeks I am running the Rocky Raccoon 50 miler then pacing my friend Sherrie in the 100 for another 40 miles. So why is it I feel like I'm cheating on my girlfriend tonight. I came home did nothing, and looked at the spin bike and said "no you need a rest day and you need to start a taper". I still feel guilty, like I haven't done enough to get ready for Rocky and really fell good so who needs rest right? Everyone needs a rest day and I know that, but it doesn't make me feel any better about it. I guess that's why they call me Runnerfreak!
