Today I had a stressful day. Locked into my training program, and with a busy weekend ahead I should have gone to Crossfit and ran 2 miles. But physically I needed a rest. My body was aching and I honestly couldn't remember my last rest day without going though my blog.
There is a saying on Crossfit610's wall, Over training is for the weak, Resting is for the Strong, and Recovery is for the Elite. I have to remember that rest days are just as important as the workouts themselves. Even if I took an unplanned rest day, I will still be able to stay on track.
After having a mini melt down about this, I saw the above picture on facebook and it literally brought me to tears. Especially the last line. My good friends that are non crossfitters think I am insane but I always tell them they are just as capable of doing the things I do! I stand by the fact that I am an ordinary person doing extraordinary things (in the gym).
Thursday: REST DAY
