While this is true, how do we know when our body has met it’s limit? The goal isn’t to kill ourself. Have you heard the phrase,
“I’d rather burn out than rust out?”
That’s dumb. Because either way you’re out. The goal is to remain in the game.
Learn how to listen to your body’s cues and warning signals. Rest when in doubt. Your body rebuilds and repairs itself when you rest. So does your mind and spirit.
Learning your body can take some time, but take the time to learn it well.
Resting is a challenge for me personally because I hate feeling unproductive. But in reality, not resting causes me in the long run to less productive, over emotional, and a train wreck waiting to happen. Our bodies and minds can only handle so much!
All things in moderation. Work hard. Play hard. And don’t forget to rest easy.
***Happy (& Blessed) Running (& Resting)!***
