Scenario: You need to train for your mental wellbeing. It just doesn’t feel right if you can’t. Intensity helps with your sanity. There’s nothing else that can compare.
I get it! I’ve been there and done that. And, you need to think long term. Long term for your body. How will it function 10 or 20 years down the road with what you are doing right now?
How about taking a chance on your health? Take those extra few minutes after a workout or cut your workout short to do those restorative exercises needed to reduce the turbulent flow that you caused while working out.
It’s you that makes the choice of recovery. It’s not a question of whether you have time or not for your body. It is 100% your choice.
So, go for it! Take a chance on your health.
