The “Take a Day Off Dilemma”
Truth: Some weeks there is nothing I love more than taking a day or two off from working out. At times rest days are tastier than a cupcake from my favorite Upper East Side bakery.
Truth: Some weeks I despise rest days. I know I need it. I take them and yet my legs no matter how tired they are, yearn to run, lunge or spin. My brain seeks relief from the thoughts that weigh me down in the form of exercise endorphins.
Yet, I take that rest day even if it means I’m totally breaking my workout commitments for the week. Rest can be more important than working out at times, no matter how loudly my brain screams for it’s endorphin fix. Today has been one of these types of days.
Random Truth: I’ve had my outfit planned for the More/Fitness Magazine 1/2 since January because racing feels a bit like a big deal deserving of a put together outfit.
What are you excited about this week? Do you plan outfits for races? Am I weird? (okay, don’t answer that one. i already know the answer.)
