When training for a sporting event and following a programme, there can be a real feel of GUILT when/if you miss a session….but REST is important.
I have a training plan that is the “ideal world” scenario, but let’s face it when is life with three toddlers tearing around the house, a business to manage, a junior triathlon club to organise, a house to keep in some sort of order and a husband to tend to (!) ideal???
Having increased my training volume a fair amount over the past couple of weeks, it is really important I let my body and soul repair before I ask it to do even more.
A day without putting lycra is a necessity for me – one less outfit to wash, if nothing else!
I do find, that once I have had a rest day I feel energised to really tackle my next training session rather than going into it half heartedly.
REST IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE TRAINING
