Today was my second consecutive day-off from training. Virtually no exercise today other than walks with Jack the pup. I feel great, have been pumping lots of protein into myself, and better yet, am getting anxious to head back into the gym tomorrow. My workout tomorrow will be superior in every way to what would have taken place if I’d made time for a half-assed session today.
Lesson: when in doubt, take a day off from working out. Of course, this only makes sense because I’ve been hitting the iron hard, getting in metabolic sessions (pushing that damn prowler). Eating lots of protein and vegetables. Trying to sleep more, but damn, my brain turns on in the morning and begins that motion picture in my head.
Tomorrow is a new day. Tonight I’m cracking the covers on this brand-spanking-new book by one of the true wise men of the iron game, Dan John. I cannot begin to think of more constructive activity on a non-workout day than digging into Before We Go (or any of Dan’s other books, for that matter). This guy is smart, walks the talk, and knows how to clearly communicate. My old friend and boss T.C. Luoma penned the foreward. Nice company.
And (this is important, Dan would back me up, I'm certain), I'm enjoying some wonderful, dry Malbec while I read!
