According to my 5 K fitness challenge I am suppose to rest today. I understand the concept and the why behind the rest; but do we ever rest? Really rest? Take me for example... I had 9 hours sleep last night, yah don't ask me how that happened; but it happens at least once a week. So I slept 9 hours, but I don't feel more rested than when I sleep 7 or God forbid less than 7 hours. So it really comes to the quality rather then the quantity of sleep.
As for last night, I had a weird dream there at the end and couldn't get out of it. For me that's unusual in the first place. I very seldom dream or remember that I did. If I get into a book too deep and have to put it down because I am tired enough that my eyes start crossing, yah then I dream sometimes. I try to complete the book in my sleep... in my head... dreaming how it will solve itself I guess. But otherwise I dream rarely. So last night I was trying to get away from a poisons snake. .. in my living room... except it was not MY living room and my cat was there... really, really weird. Maybe I watch when I do my yard work today not to run into a snake.. . just in case.
So I am to rest today, but since I have two other challenges that I need at least 10 minutes of exercise for I think today I go for a walk and see where I end up. The temperature dropped over night drastically. We had a cold front move in late yesterday afternoon and it's here to stay for a while. Also, I woke up super sore, my knees and hip where super stiff this morning and it will take me a while to move them properly to go safely on a walk. So, rest day, really a blessing in disguise.
..maybe I bake some cookies today... I have a notion to make some Pizzelli's and since I have not made them in a while I think I can handle one batch. ... or I test a cookie recipe. My grand-daughter will spent Friday/Saturday with us and it's time we baked some Christmas cookies.
