Yesterday morning when I woke up, I felt like I had been hit by a bus. I was exhausted and everything hurt on my body. I always feel my hardest workout two day later. This indicts that I defiantly needed to rest my body. Yesterday, I did no workout, no running, I was going to go for a walk but I changed my mind. I got home from work, ate dinner and took a nap, until 6 am. Apparently I was sleepy. I slept almost 10 hours. That rarely happens. I got to snuggle this little guy while I slept.
He's obviously not the most exciting animal that you'll ever see.
I have completely realized that actual rest days are so important. My body feels so much better from not doing anything yesterday. I normally feel like a lazy bum if I don't at least do laundry or take a walk, but i defiantly needed the rest. I'm taking an rest day today again to do our second wedding registry at Target. Fun Fun! It's supposed to be 41 degrees tomorrow, so I think I'm going to go to the gym after work. I'm really excited to get back into it after having two day off.
How many days in a row do you take to rest when you need it?
