Blogs... Interesting things...

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

There's times when I wouldn't remember what I had for breakfast or did last weekend if it weren't for my online journal do-hickey. It's a nice way to track what you do in your life, and also a good opportunity to notice trends that are otherwise less than obvious.

I was looking back over the last few weeks and noticed one big thing that has escaped me till now. I've been getting the big, "Slow the ::bleep:: down!" message for about 3 weeks - Since about the first of the month to be exact. I've been tired, un-motivated, achey, and just having inconsistent results with with each workout. I know that it's normal to feel like your totally 'on' one day and not so much the next, but then feel better the following day.

But to feel off for 3 weeks straight? Yeah, that's just me being silly. I've been pushing a lot which isn't aways bad, but maybe haven't been giving myself the rest periods that I need.

So as much as it pains me to take a break for a week, think I may need to do that so my body can settle down. Whee...

    Rest & Recovery is what they call it. So yep, go recover. When you are recovered, your next go round will be even better. It is funny how we can keep track of ourselves on our blog. I just need to be able to keep track of myself off the computer.
    Have a fantastic day, and thanks for stopping by my page and for the kind words. I needed that.

    If rest is what your body needs that's the healthy thing to do. Try to enjoy the time "off".
