Remember, resting is important

Posted by piphunt on July 22, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness |

Let’s face it, some days I just wake up feeling like crap. I love to play hard, I have to work hard, and sometimes the combination takes its toll on body. Like yesterday, my alarm clock went off at 8, I hit sleep more times than I can count, and rolled out of bed with tongue chewing dehydration from my shift before. My exhausted mind wished for tea while my body cried for water and I stood before my fridge wondering what the hell I have to eat for breakfast. What did I say about last week about making better choices? Right, I think I have to have food in my fridge before that can be fully effective. The result? blueberries, yogurt, almonds, and an exhausted. Guess I’m not going to make it on that bike ride before the heat hits after all. It’s time for a rest day.
I’ll admit it, I’m not very good at resting, I feel so lazy when I spend an entire day running errands or just hanging out. However, it has been a pretty brutal week; seven shifts at the restaurants, climbing/hiking Mt. Superior’s South East ridge, a couple mtn. bike rides, crossfit, and bike commuting.
Instead, I took advantage of the day to write a little, research my next trip, and rest a little (weird, who rests?). Check out my guest blog post on my old trainer and friend Nate’s blog.
