While the general rule says to take it easy. It does not mean you can not do anything. So this is what I did for the last 11 days whether you want to know or not.
Monday 14th - Day 1
Played miniature golf with family. (I'm counting that as cross training)
Friday 18th - Day 5
Ran an easy 2 miles. (Nice and slow)
Saturday 19th - Day 6
Hiked for 1.5 miles with kids searching for geocaches. (Again, fun cross training)
Tuesday 22nd - Day 9
Ran 2.6 miles. Short distance but pushed the pace a little.
Average min/mile pace- 9:34
Thursday 24th - Day 11 ( Race Recovery Complete )
Ran 3.4 miles. Ran a little further and faster. I must have been excited because I started off way too fast.
Average min/mile pace- 9:11
I also did some real cross training mixed in but I realized that I haven't been posting often enough to include it and not have this post unnecessarily long. I have become more motivated to include more cross training because of the jealousy I have of my brother's arms in this picture.

What feature or skill are you jealous of from a friend, or family member?
