At the end of April I went on my annual family trip to Queensland to see my grandparents. They live right on the beach in a tiny town, full of retirees, so I basically had the beach to myself and it was amazing.
Making up for lost time
I had a really good week of training this week so decided to have today off to relax and recover. I do my best not to have days off training as I always feel bad about it (especially seeing as I was too sick to train for the better part of this year so far), however, I think it was definitely needed. Sometimes I have to remind myself that resting is important too as it gives your body time to recover and ensures you don’t burn out.
Like most people, I have always found it hard to get going on a Monday, however, one thing that really helps me is planning out what I am going to do and achieve for the week of a Sunday night. It gets me excited for the week to come and also helps me keep my motivation for the rest of the week.
