Do you ever have those days when you are just worn out? I feel that way today. My muscles are sore, it's hard to concentrate, and I just would like to sit in bed and watch Revolution. I'm only 20 minutes into the first episode, so let me know if it's lame and I am wasting my time.
I had planned to run sprint intervals for 10 minutes today, but ended up walking incline intervals for 5 minutes and only running sprints for 5 minutes. A good 10 minute workout, but 10 less than I had planned. My legs just didn't have it in them. A few years ago I would have pushed myself through the entire workout, but one thing I am learning is to listen to my body. Because of my career I need to be able to be on my feet teaching and have the energy to do it well. My work is a workout so my workout needs to suit energy level for that day. I am hoping that by taking it easy today I will be able to do a 4-5 mile run outdoors this weekend.
What about you? Do you push through or stop when that little (worn out) voice tells you to?
