This is something I am working on, taking enough days for rest and recovery! I work out a lot, like really a lot. I do not take enough time to let my muscles heal,grow or rebuild themselves. I am a work in progress.
Friday I did a two a day (2 workouts 1 day)
I went to Crossfit at noon and worked on Pistols and did the benchmark Helen WOD ,worked then went for a 4.3 mile run because it was a beauty day!
I then decided that I was going to take the whole weekend off from exercise. Just sit back and relax!
I worked Saturday then came home and enjoyed some patio time with a daiquiri
Just laying in the sun watching my girls hang by the pool and had my friend over for some company! It was a great day!
I had to work again today but I was not going for a run, it was raining so that helped seal the deal ! Had a great supper with my dad and I ate the biggest piece of carrot cake ever!
Here is a great article I read about the importance of rest days
This is a great running related article on rest days for runners
Here are some ideas on what to do on the rest/recovery days
Now I’m going to get a good nights sleep and start the run process all over again tomorrow!
