A Little Gym Break



Taking a little break doesn't always have to mean from work or studying, it can also be a break from working out. And that's just what I did. Last Wednesday to Thursday night I barely could sleep because of noise from my neighbor. Because she went to bed later, I couldn't sleep much after.

So that Thursday I was so tired at work. I had five coffee in the morning (four more than usual) and after a fun meeting before lunch break, I was back to myself again. But, all the coffee resulted in a huge headache in the afternoon and back to tiredness. Right there and then I decided I wouldn't go to the gym that night. Which was really hard for me, because I love working out! But I knew that this time it would only make me more tired and that I needed my little remained energy to study at night. 

Most Friday nights I don't go to the gym (except last week to do kickboxing!), so no training to nights in a row. But come Saturday, I kicked in a two hour long training session on Saturday afternoon and it felt great! I even did some stretching which felt really good as well. Really need to do that more often!

Later that day I had an hour long sports massage at my favorite massage salon which was really needed as well. I was so tight she said, she worked an hour just on my back, sheesh! She actually recommend me yoga which I haven't done in quite some time. Well, I wanted to stretch more often and I do some yoga poses after my work out at the gym so I should be doable. Maybe some pre work or before bed yoga session? I'll keep you guys posted!

  1. Really enjoyed reading this! Sometimes tips like this is all someone really needs to not be so intimidated by the gym. I am just going now to buy solid rubber dumbbells and start exercise at home. Thank youu.
