Rest Day 6/27/13:
Get Outside! Go for a 45min Walk!
Life can get crazy and schedules can fill up fast, especially in the summer with work, parties, and vacations. That doesn’t mean you should just give in to the pressure. Sometimes taking 5 minutes to step outside and breath can be extremely refreshing. Taking time for yourself is key to balance and recovery. Tomorrow looks like there could be some crazy weather in the Boston area, so if you see a window get outside and take 45 minutes for yourself before getting stuck inside. Find a river, go for a walk, enjoy the little things.
I took a 45 minute walk in the heat/humidity yesterday and it was awesome. I even caught a glimpse of some elite eights rowing down power house stretch on the Charles River.
Share your experience or what you do to take time for yourself.
