There is nothing worse (to me) then when I look at my workout calendar and I see that its a yoga day (or pilates, or stretching, or any form of "active rest"). I know, #firstworldproblems.. But really, it sucks. And when I see that it's a Yoga day, I immediately have the inner battle of whether I suck it up and do it, do the yoga and still add on an extra cardio workout, or just ignore it completely - I tend to lean on the side of ignore. I'm a mom of two little kids, I just don't have time to waste on a workout that isn't going to get me drenched in sweat. Which I know is
a terrible way of thinking. Especially when deep down, I know that programs are put together by professionals for a reason.
So I guess my question is this - how many people actually use their rest days? I workout, what I would consider ,"super hard" 6 days a week, but I still work out "hard" on that 7th day. But thats because I'm a cardio junkie and I love the endorphin high I get when I push myself to complete a workout. I know my body needs a break occasionally, but I actually feel miserable on days I don't go hard... So what's a girl to do?
