Gayle looking great – a tough feat for anyone that's doing "Angie"

Recovery Part II

So you're eating a hormonally favorable diet that's rich in Paleo foods, you've been getting 8-10 hours sleep at night, and you've taken steps to reduce stress.  What's next?  Why do you still feel like walking zombie? 

At times, we simply ask to much from ourselves.  Most CrossFitters are not the average go to work and be happy with mediocre type of person.  Most of us give everything our all – whether it's 9 hours in the office, 6 hours on the ski hill, or 2 minutes and 50 seconds doing "Fran" – we're not happy unless we give it everything we've got.  This will undoubtedly take it's toll eventually.

The 3-on 1-off workout cycle is ideal for most CrossFitters.  Day 1 you should be fresh and ready to go.  Day 2 you'll be feeling the effects of day 1, but you've got more in the tank and you're still thinking a PR is probable.  Day 3 you're hammered dog shit, but you can do it because tomorrow is a rest day.  Day 4… wait – you shouldn't be working out!

Rest days are just that – rest and relaxation time for your mind and body.  Don't overlook the benefits of a day off (work and play) and take the time to meditate, pray, talk with your spouse and kids, or simply veg out and watch Oprah.  Allow yourself to recuperate – you deserve it! 

Stay tuned for more…
