Galatians 6:9 says, "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."
In the Greek, the word for ‘weary’ means ‘to lose heart,’ and the word for ‘well’ in ‘well doing’ also means ‘right. The word for ‘faint’ means ‘to relax’ or ‘to draw back in effort.’ So, in that plateau week, don’t lose heart when you have done everything right. You will succeed if you do not back down in your efforts.
Having a hard time exercising in your target heart rate zone? Maybe you need to check your resting heart rate! If you are getting regular cardio, your resting heart rate will decrease. Since your target heart rate is based on your resting heart rate, it's important to periodically check your resting heart rate and adjust your target heart rate as your resting heart rate decreases.
