Alright guys, I know that there are SO many awesome in-house and out of house competitions and events coming up, and last week's mental toughness lessons have you PUMPED to workout. But there's one important thing to remember that too often gets overlooked, and this is REST.
Your rest days are the only times that your muscles actually have time to recover and grow after you use them in a workout. I know it's hard to think this way because crushing WOD's is so much fun and makes you feel accomplished. Of course this is true, but without rest there is no repair, and without repair there is no progress! Without proper recovery for your muscles, you're not doing them any good. Recover also includes sleep, nutrition, etc, but we'll get to that later this week.
Notice that the main site (www.crossfit.com) has rest days worked into their program, usually around every 4th day. We can't do that here because all of you are on different schedules, so it's up to you to make sure you're working in your rest days!!
Start with a 800m run then with the remaining time, AMRAP:
1 wall walk
5 sit ups
2 wall walks
10 sit ups
3 wall walks
15 sit ups...
pattern continues until end
"Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live."
