Dealing With Tough Runs, Also Deep Stretches For Flexibility & Active Rest

So there it goes. Yesterday’s 10 km run was brutal. I am not really surprised since I took a few weeks break from running due to my extreme work overload and fatigue that came with it. But I didn’t expect it to be THIS hard.

That being said, I must admit, I am proud of myself. Proud for not giving up, and proud for sticking through it! After all, it is normal to have highs and lows, but what’s more important is how we go about it. All it takes is a little bit of extra effort, willingness and dedication. The feeling of accomplishment when you are done is SOOO worth it!

Today is my rest day. However, I thought it would be a good idea to have an active rest day instead.

And what could be better than doing some yoga?! (+ don’t forget about the Spartan 30 squats for 30 days challenge!)

Plus, I am really overdue on some good stretching!!!

How do you deal with tough runs? What are your favorite ways to have an active rest when it’s still cold outside?
