For those of you who do not do Crossfit, time off is a necessary part of training. Rest is helpful mentally and physically. Some days you just do not want to talk about freaking crossfit- I know that seems hard to believe coming from me. Plus, your body needs that time to recover from the exercise and repair itself.
This past week, I had three days off in a row. There were sick kiddos and shit to get accomplished that took priority over workouts. Before I knew it, it was Wednesday afternoon and I had yet to hit a work out. So I decided since my flow was already jacked, I was going to go with it and mix it up. Not only did I take the rest days, but I visited other Crossfit gyms. I worked with different coaches, different athletes, and it was nice to take a mental break from my routine and get out of my world for a bit.
Sometimes you've got to mix it up. We all get stuck in our ways sometimes. Variety is the spice of life after all ;0) And now I feel rejuvenated and ready to get back to my coaches, my workout buddies, and my routine.
It's almost Open time!!! Get ready to rock it, my loves!!!
