No running or gym for me today! I took it easy and just went for another walk. Gotta give those muscles time to recover after destroying them earlier this week!
Rest is so important, even for the fittest of people. I learned this one the hard way during the fall. I was overtrained and ended up having to take a few weeks off of exercise. As you can imagine, I didn’t much appreciate that!
So, to avoid overtraining I take one rest day per week (sometimes two). The most exercise I ever do on these days are walks to loosen up my legs. Who doesn’t love taking a nice walk around the state park? (That is, when the birds aren’t attacking you. Those things can be vicious.)
