I took the week off from training and did absolutely nothing. Not a damn thing but stuff around the house and I also binged on Criminal Minds. It was glorious and also difficult.
This wasn’t something planned out but something I decided on last minute. I realized the past few weeks that I’ve been getting tired more easily and feeling a lot more joint aches after workouts.
Going 5 days a week to workout was not a big deal but lately it’s been a struggle. My body gets so worn out and exhausted that I end up taking a day off.
It sucks. This isn’t a place I want to be. It makes me feel like my body is falling apart. The worst is that it makes me feel like I’m old.
I hate feeling old.
So this week I decided to just chill and give my body a full on break. It was difficult because I like working out and I like seeing my FitFam each day.
Yes I said it, FitFam. My gym is my second home. I miss lifting that bar and cursing with each stupid burpee.
But I feel like my body just needed this down time. I’ll be back next week and hopefully this rest will prove to have been helpful.
Have you ever taken a break from training?
