My whole feeling in terms of racing is that you have to be very bold. You sometimes have to be aggressive and gamble. - Bill Rodgers
I've had a very rare day off. No swimming, no running, no cycling. Mentally it's killed me but physically it's necessary. As a Long Distance Runner do I have a compulsive obsessive disorder to want to exercise all the time, even when I get an injury? I think not because true OCD is quite negative with the person not receiving relief from doing it. I have a positive goal and get relief. I might be too stubborn though to break away from the daily routines. Having this day off has shown to me that I am too committed and this is something I continue to work at.
