Nap Time

Sometimes you just need a nap!

Today was one of those days.  Didn't sleep so great last night (no reason .. just awake).  Then the day was spent packing up my office and ingesting unhealthy amounts of dust.  When my son's soccer coach called to cancel practice for the night I knew right then that I would also cancel my run plans.  We're getting stupid amounts of rain today, and the next few days, so I really wasn't wanting to run outdoors anyway.  It's been dark all day, drizzly, cold and damp.  And I just couldn't face the treadmill tonight.  Besides ...... I needed a nap!

I hate to get behind in my plan already, but I don't need to be getting rundown and getting sick.  There is no time for that! :) 

Almost 2 hours was spent snuggled in a blanket with the dog in front of the woodstove .... ahhhhhh, HEAVEN!  And now I'm going to turn in early too.  Tomorrow will be a crazy day, hopefully ending with a run.

Is it still too early in winter to be dreaming of warm, sunny, spring & summer days?

Keep Active!

I totally agree! Naps are a good thing and our bodies definitely know when we need one! Have a great day!

Your dog seems to be looking right at us. (hehehe)

Naps are a good thing. Paying attention to your body, and taking a break when you need it are good things.

Give Ratdog a tummy rub for me :)

Love that sleeping photo of you look beautiful even in dreamland...cant say the same about mouth hangs open...LOL..ugly sight indeed.
Good that you listened to your body and napped...I do that as well, most times while I watch tv my eyes close and I fall asleep...even with a good nights sleep...the joys of aging...hehehe

A nap is something that I wish I could take every day! I am glad you were able to get some rest.

You look so peaceful and I love your dog. I should take a nap more often especially on Saturday after my long run. Usually I can't keep my eyes open at night. I sometimes do it and Bella always jumps on the couch then and lies next to me.

It's only 6 days in the New Year, you're not behind on your plan yet, you'll catch up. Taking care of yourself now is more important.

Take care my friend.
