When Leonidas of Sparta was told by the Persian king to lay down his weapons, that was his answer. Molon Labe. “Come and take them”. Be defiant in training.

Today was interesting.  Yesterday was a VERY long day, and by the time I crashed I was absolutely fried.  The mix of long commuting times, medication and stress culminated in me sleeping right through my alarm this morning at 3:30.  So much for the morning workout.  Made up for it in the evening with s spin class and some yoga.  Felt guilty missing a workout – but I REEEAlly needed the rest.

Bottom line: listen to your body.  If it needs rest, then REST.  It helps you heal and makes tomorrow’s training session better.
