Training for our next great challenge makes us stronger, builds our determination, discipline and will power. Training enables us to take on any conquest and come out victorious! It makes us into amazing beings!
It also drains us. Like life, it can tax us in unexpected way — ways that require reflection and renewal. For the incredible gifts is gives, training also takes. It can zap our energy and delete our reserves if we’re not careful.
If your plan calls for rest days and times for recovery, heed the call. Beast mode is not a constant requirement. Take care of yourself out there. The world will continue on while you rest.
