Getting back on track ... Slowly
Thursday, December 06, 2012
Last week I was sick for two days. Not really sick but burned out. I forced myself to two consecutive rest days and it paid off. After that I did hot yoga for three consecutive days and held up my intense strength training sessions. I was not ready yet, I was not motivated and felt my body needed to soak up the benefits of the week before.
Again it paid off. I still lost weight.
The downside was when I went back to my strength training session. I lacked a lot of energy in the beginning of the workout. It was only at the end that my body gave its optimum performance. I also noticed that I did not sweat as much.
I did only 25 mins of cardio instead of 40 mins. I wanted to take it easy. I hope this will pay off.
I really hope that the next time I will be back to my old performance. It is a little weird for me because I only missed two sessions and my condition has already lowered.
I am only a little sore. Even so tonight I will be doing a bit of hot yoga. Tomorrow I shall see. For sure I have learned my lesson. Sometimes intensity is better than frequency. Be well rested so that I can give my all during my workout.
Here is to another beautiful week almost ending.
Happy thursday everyone
