Well Deserved Rest Day

I'm feeling extremely fatigued and today is my rest day and I'm happy to take it!

After last week at CrossFit I was having a lot of shoulder/chest/back soreness. The weekend I planned on lifting nothing, did get in a run on Saturday in my five fingers, and then attempted a mountain bike ride on Sunday. I ended up bagging out half-way through the ride :( I was making stupid mistakes, not feeling confident - and the more I worried about it the more mistakes I was making. Physical fatigue was playing with me mentally. I decided further riding was not going to go well, and it was best to go home rather than risk injury. So that's what I did. It's unlike me to bag out on a ride! And in fact, I don't think I've ever done that before.

And then the beginning of this week was two very intense and difficult workouts for me at CrossFit - including a lot of pull-ups and upper body - Ugh!

I'm sore. I'm tired. My body wants recovery time. Today is a well deserved rest day :)
