Balance including plenty rest

It was a rest day today for me… a bit of a broken sleep last night, so I decided to lie in, instead of my planned Strength workout. 😴 🛌 💤 I lay to catch some zzz’s instead of getting up early to train. I knew that I needed it, so took it. Easy peasy. 👍🏻

I still somehow managed to meet all of my Apple Watch goals & 8000 steps … and everything feels a bit more recovered after today. 😀 busy day at work… and walk to and from work.

Someone in work asked me how many rest days I have, and I honestly answered about 2 a week… that’s about right – sometimes less, sometimes more. I plan a lot in my training, but listen to my body and take rest when I need it. And I don’t feel guilty if I need to rejig things to include more rest.

I tend to only run 3 times a week, maybe 4 sometimes (not every day, like some people think). 🏃‍♀️ and I try to not over do it with my running effort. I learned quite a few years ago when I burnt out / overtrained, so rest and recovery is very important to me to get a balance. I also have my other half ‘Fit Girl’ supporting and motivating me which helps.

Work, life, family, training…. How do you ensure you get a balance with everything?

Hopefully I’ll be refreshed and maybe be back on the gym tomorrow morning. We will see. 👍🏻🏋🏼‍♂️ night night. 💤 😴
