And on Thursday I Rested…

Thursday C has Brownies so I don’t go to the gym.  Often though I will run or do something else like a yoga/ pilates workout.  I had chiro after work and she worked on my super tight IT bands.  It was mild but damp out and I planned to run, however, I just didn’t want to get a chill.  I have had really tough wods this week and I thought maybe I should just take the night off and relax.

I think the tough workouts we have done this week really caught up with me.  I never recapped Wednesday and it was a doozy.  What we did was 10-1-10 front squats and burpees.  It was a partner wod, so while I did the 10 front squats and burpees, she did wall sit, then she did her 10, and I did wallsit,  Then I did 9 and she did 9, then 8 etc.  It was really tough.  some people switched to push ups instead of burpees but I stuck with it.  We got all the way down to 1 and back up to 7.  I would say we kicked ass on this wod.

For dinner that night I made homemade burgers out of half lean ground beef and half ground chicken.  I overcooked them but when I covered them with guac and the Bolthouse Salsa Ranch Yogurt dressing, it was pretty good.

Back to my rest day, it pretty much consisted of laundry, dinner and my couch.  I was up to bed at 930 and slept like a baby.  Not a bad way to spend the evening.  I feel like I am definitely ready to face Friday like a champ now.

How often do you enjoy a rest day?
