Getting Into Myzone – Rest Day(s)

SOMETIMES, YOU JUST NEED A REST

And that’s alright! Yesterday was the first day I slipped my gym shoes on since last Thursday. Sometimes we take a break from the gym, but the worst thing we could do is let it become a whole week that turns into 2 weeks…

I suffer from gym-xiety (that’s gym-anxiety) when I take a break, probably because I’m nervous about how my workout will go after a few days. Getting back on the horse is crucial to conquering that gym-xiety. When I laced up my shoes yesterday afternoon, I was nervous I was going to lift less or not be able to last as long on the rowing machine, so I made a deal with myself that I was going to get back at it and do what I could during my first day back.

AND GUESS WHAT… I surprised myself and had a pretty good workout! Gym-xiety conquered. If you’re working your muscles pretty hard for days at a time, it’s also a good idea to give them a break so they can recover and you can keep building those muscles.

I’m excited to welcome a good friend and long-time Y member back to the gym this week so we can lace up our shoes together. Stay tuned for more later this week!
