Hi Friends! Happy Hump Day! This morning the alarm went off at 4:40 to head to the gym and my brain thought, “oh no you don’t, you go back to sleep.” I’ve been working out 6 days a week for the last couple months, something I’ve NEVER done before. In fact, when I was doing crossfit and running a lot I was working out 4 days a week with two full off days and one day of yoga. I saw great results, much more than I’m seeing now. When I started overtraining, going to crossfit 3 days a week and running 3 days a week, that was when I got injured. That injury has taken me two years to recover from and I’m still on low doses of daily anti-inflammatory. So this morning I got up and walked the pup a couple of miles and made a two ingredient pancake, my favorite!
Blog still isn’t letting me upload photos, but I’m working on getting it fixed! I feel a little weird not working out today, but I think it will motivate me to hit it hard the next couple of days.
What do you think? How many rest days are good per week?
How do you prevent overtraining?
