megsswm Posted January 17, 2013 Share Posted January 17, 2013 So I am on day 19 right now and up until today have felt pretty aweseome. I also started crossfitting last month so it is a kind of double whammy. I am trying to go to crossfit four times a week and to this point have had no issues. Today I am just feeling run down and tired ( not sure why)...One side of my brain is saying go home after work, relax, and take the dogs for a nice walk, and sleep...the other side of me is saying if you go to the gym you will be glad you did once it is done, and if you don't you will feel ike you should have.....I am a competitive swimmer by background all thru college and was quite good....after years of searching for something I like crossfit I am loving....and I am trying to stay consistent even thru the whole30....So I guess my question is for those who have some lofty fitness goals ( i am overweight now and motived to loss and get back into shape) and diet changes.....when do you know its okay to take a day off and its not just your brain telling you to be lazy? Coming from a background where at my peak I was swimming and working out 5-7 hours a day in season how do I train my brain that taking a day off is okay without feeling guilty? Help!
