Getting enough rest after exercise is essential to your performance, but many still over train and have guilt when they decide to take a day off. The body repairs and strengthens itself in the time between workouts, and continuous training can actually weaken the strongest athletes. There are limits to how much duress the body can tolerate before it starts to breakdown and risks injury. As we all know, injury can be a hard obstacle to overcome and may set you back further in your attempt to be fit for the hunt.
Monitor your workouts and paying attention to how your body feels and how motivated you are is extremely helpful in determining your body’s need for rest and recovery. The greater the training intensity and effort, the greater the need for planned rest and recovery. Today, was a day of rest for me especially since I have a tough training session ahead of me tomorrow. Stay posted!
