Today I kept my workout simple and restorative: I did a 45-minute yoga class. I had another busy weekend and my energy level is low. I had a great hour-long swim last night, and I feel comfortable with the idea of taking an easier day today. I am putting off my next "Bridge to 10K" workout until tomorrow, but at least I got my minimum of activity in.
For those of you who aren't able to do something every day, are you making it too hard on yourselves? Can you find 30 minutes to do something active, even if it isn't a "workout," to get your minutes in?
I personally don't believe that every workout has to increase your heartrate to X% of your maximum and leave you soaked in sweat. I love those kinds of workouts, but sometimes I like to take it a little easier on myself and give myself time to recover. I'm trying to build a lifetime habit here.
I'm also trying to remind myself that no matter how busy I feel, I need some time for myself and my own health. Hopefully that is something that resonates with you, too.
