My workouts have been super tough lately. Tougher than ever, actually. And now I really need a break. My fitness progress this past month has been epic, but my body is tired and my mind has become a wee bit weary.
So I’ve decided to do a little experiment.
For the next 7 days (starting today), I will do NO Beastmode workouts. I will do NO plyometrics, NO strength training, NO Speed Rope, NO burpees. Nothing like that at all. YIKES! Do you see where this is going?
What will I do instead? I will continue to climb Corcovado Mountain, bask in bendy-flowy Yoga-ish moves set to relaxing music, and enjoy luxurious walks through the park on my lunch breaks. More personal prayer time is also on the menu.
I will also hide under my bed so the Greedy Family can’t terrorize me. I’ll have a filled-up wine glass with me, of course.
Ahhhh. I can feel myself becoming rejuvenated already.
I’ve never done this before — never refrained for such a long stretch of time. It’s going to take courage to NOT exercise as usual (weird, huh?). I’m taking cues from my body and will honor what it’s asking of me.
Restoration! Relaxation! Renewed strength! I’m all about that life, yo.
