Taking a Breather

Today is a rest day.

I have a love/hate relationship with rest days. While intellectually I understand that all strength gains come from rest days, mentally they just wreck me. I feel lazy. Unmotivated. Sedentary. Did I mention lazy? It's not difficult to rest. But it is difficult to refrain from the self-flagellation that results from a overzealous type A personality. Changing my thought process from "I'm allowed to take a day off" to "I am required to take a day off" is tough. However, history has shown that running myself ragged certainly hasn't worked for me thus far - so embrace the rest day I shall.

No more over training for this chica.

But I'd sure love to go for a long run today....
