This week’s tip comes at a time when most of us are happy to simply get the workouts done, much less take things to the next level.
Stress, even good stress, takes a toll on the body. This is something we all need to remember as we cram in swimming/biking/running with all the holiday madness these next few weeks.
This quote from Ryan Hall sums it up perfectly:
“I actually think being a more balanced person makes a healthier, happier, and thus faster person. The question I try and ask myself when I consider whether or not to train more is what is my body craving and what is my body ready to absorb? Sometimes pushing harder is not the answer. It takes self control, confidence, and intuition to know when to train and when to rest, but when in question error on the side of being over rested. ”
Sometimes success is measured in simply getting the work done.
Train Happy, My Friends!
