Our school has been closed for the past two days due to icy, snowy roads. I have not been to the gym since Tuesday. For the first time in a long time I am ok with that. Yesterday I slept. Apparently I really needed to catch up. I also drank over a gallon of water. Apparently I was dehydrated as well. Today i had an early appointment and really did not feel like going to the gym at 5:30 especially since I did not "have" to. So I got some laundry and cleaning done.
Now I have a few minutes before leaving for the Y. Appointments and wellness hours this afternoon:) Hopefully the roads aren't too bad,
I am finding there are weeks that I can work out 7 days a week. Then there are times that I need a day (or two) to recover. I find myself practicing what I am telling members at the Y. Listen to your body. If it tells you to go, go. If it tells you to rest, rest. Be sure you know the difference. Could I have worked out today? Sure. I would love to go to spin tonight, but can't due to working at the Y. Discovering balance is a very good thing:)
How many rest days do you take a week? Do you schedule them or rest when needed?
