Taking A Day Or 2 Of Rest Makes A Big Difference
Monday, March 04, 2013
Taking a day or two off from my usual exercise routine made a huge difference! I couldn't believe all of the energy that I had this morning because I rested over the weekend. By rested, I don't mean that I was a couch potato. I scaled back my exercise to one long walk on Saturday and one on Sunday. It has been a long time since I've taken two days off in a row. I usually just take off Sundays but my body was talking loud and clear this weekend. I listened.
Today I rode 65 minutes - intervals of 6 and 8 on the recumbent cycle followed by 95 minutes of jogging in the pool. That was followed by several minutes of stretching. I felt exhilarated when I finished! I had to complete a bunch of errands after my workout and I did them with ease.
To complete my day, hubby fixed me a lovely dinner while I haggled with a store over a lost order. He even washed the dishes afterward! Am I lucky or what?
