Rest Day Wrap-Up, No. 1

After building up base mileage during July (a period which followed a light June to recover from spring racing), I started my 18-week dedicated training for the St. Jude Memphis marathon last week. Although it will vary from time to time, Mondays will be my most frequent rest day during this training period, with additional rest days falling the weeks of races and later in the cycle as marathon day nears.

Each week, I hope to share some reflections–about training and running, about work, and about life–to mark the rest day and another week in the pursuit of the marathon.
