Do you think about your training routine?

In order to keep inner harmony we need to balance our lives. I been training much harder than I use to do, this spring and summer. In the same time I had lots of work to do.  Without knowing I felt weaker.

Sometime when we are in the middle of a situation or a period of time and we tend to not  really see what is happening to us. We keep on going and so did I without really seeing that the body needed some rest.

As much as training is healthy, rest has also an important impact on the body. Than as you can see under I was working with reporting about the Americas Cup and I wasn’t going down to do any training at the fitness centre. I didn’t have any rest from physical activity however, it was breaking the routine was the thing that got my motivation back. So yesterday when I was back at the gym again I did my cross hill and I ran. I was expecting myself to be in less good condition  because of one week break but actually I surprised myself and did better. I than realised that my better result consisted of a higher motivation and that the routine caused me some kind of stress that I could break. Beeing away a week wasn’t so bad as I expected and resting was healthy for my body I got some good new energy and I managed to increase my running result two days in a row.
