told her I was thinking about taking a break from running. She told me she thought it was a great idea. We agreed on six weeks.
My running hiatus is not a complete exercise hiatus! Instead of hitting the treadmill and running around the track four to five times a week, I tried out some stuff I have not done in a long time. I did a few workouts on the elliptical. My speed on the elliptical was much faster than the treadmill--is that normal? I also went back to spin class and yoga.

the hiatus has done wonders for me mentally, but I think its to soon to call it physically. I tell you, it feels great to have the freedom to wake up and do what ever work out I want to! But I do feel a bit jealous when I see a girl running down the road...
Have you ever taken a planned running hiatus? How did it work out for you?
A dream is a wish...
