Hi. I just finished an early morning kick ass athletic conditioning class…OMG. I thought I was going to throw up on the studio floor. All I want to do is sleep for the rest of the day. And in fact, if I can, maybe I’ll get a nap in…nothing wrong with a nap on a Saturday, especially if my body wants it. I’m also going to get a massage. What I realize is that if I’m going to stick to working out everyday and not get hurt, I have to take care of my body like athletes do. I know some people roll with a foam roller or a tennis ball and that works too. But for me, I need to massage out these muscles and stretch. I’m also going to look for a sauna and cold plunge to help heal my achy muscles.
Challenge: It’s the weekend, but your healthy regiment does not need a break. I’m challenging you to a 25 minute workout today - you decide what you do and how, but make sure your body is moving and that you sweat! You’ve almost completed a full week of the challenge - keep going! I’m proud of you.
