Today is Saturday May 30th and I decided to take a day off from working out. Why? Yesterday I ran three miles, time was 3 minutes slower than normal. I got to the gym and could barely move 240 pounds in the shoulder press. I put down the weights, showered and headed out. One important factor about fitness is listening to your body. So how do you know it is time for a rest?
- if you are feeling fine and try to talk yourself out of going to the gym; you are proably just being lazy.
- if you are feeling tired and worn out and you are trying to talk yourself into going to the gym; you might be a little over trained. Take a day or two off and go back in with a vengence!
