Good morning! This morning, the alarm went off for me to get up for the gym, and the first thing I thought of was that I had just gone to sleep. I’ve had several great workouts lately, and I think my body was just tired. So, I very quickly declared today a rest day.
How often do you take rest days? I started thinking about what I mean when I say I’m taking a rest day, because as I started getting ready for work, I started thinking about how, even though it’s a rest day, I’ll still do some burpees and I still want to meet my step goal. So does that mean today is a rest day?
In my mind, rest days are taking a break from pushing myself to the limit. I still want to be active and I know my body will appreciate some movement. So, I might do some burpees and I will definitely get out and take the dog for a walk. The key is stretching my muscles out, but not overtaxing them. What do you do on a rest day?
