Week 27 of my journey saw me only hit 2 days at the gym (Monday and Sunday) due to a work event most of the week and wanting to get a round of golf in on Saturday. But…some of that was intentional and used to give myself a little rest before I go straight for about 2 weeks.
I’m continually coming back to the notion that you must listen to your body and not try to overwork it when you feel a bit off. I had a sore left should/neck area going into this past week and after the workout Monday I felt that the few days I thought I’d miss might end up being good and not to stress it.
Additionally, I was jacked up to get back there today so it put a little pep in my step as i’d been missing it.
Crushing workouts and feeling fit is always great but it can’t be done if your mind and body are not healthy and recovered.
Sometimes a little rest goes a long way to making your progress even that much more.
Make sure you audit yourself and listen to that internal dialogue.
