Things have been unusual around here. My days are very regimented usually.
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are strength training and pilates days, Tuesday and Thursday are my spinning days, and Saturday and Sunday are either yoga, rest, or spin. Every week I abide by this schedule without fail. Sometimes I exercise everyday and don’t allow a rest day at all.
My relationship with exercise has always been rocky. Have you ever felt guilty for taking rest days? Does the thought make you anxious? For me it does, and it’s important for me to escape the mindset that more exercise is better. I need to find things outside of fitness that will allow me to recover and recharge my mental and physical batteries.
