There was a time when I did not appreciate rest days. I must not have been working hard enough ;-) Don't get me wrong, I love training and look forward to whatever is on the day's agenda but these days when a rest day rolls around, I am ready! (my lazy pets above who know how to rest!)
Last night I was definitely on empty and the reserves were absolutely tapped out. I was ready for bed at 6 pm, but hung in there till 10.
Today's "OFF" day came at just the right time.
I slept in till 5:30 and woke up feeling awesome!
I love the instructions for today -- "relax" and "rest". Ummm...yeah. Can you tell my family, clients, and projects that?
But seriously, it is nice.
Without an early morning workout, I had tonight's dinner made by 6:30 am - turkey meatballs that will go with a cucumber sauce in pitas.
I only have to take ONE shower (or none if I'm really lazy).
I read the paper!
The bummer is that the sun is shining and it would be a glorious day to bike or run.
But better to "relax" and "rest".
