My window to the world: Week of the 15th to 28th of August

 "Failure is not an option, it is a step forward" just don't abuse of it and listen to your body or to others...

Last week I was talking about Sunday 21st as being a perfect day and it felt like that. At a fitness level, I felt accomplished as I managed to push my body so hard and survived.On that morning, I swam, did a demanding conditioning session and finished with a spin class.I felt mentally good as I raised my game to the challenge but my body took a hit...On Monday, I was half of myself, as I got up I wished nobody would come to the 6.45-7.30am Tabata class as I was still really tired.It was funny as I knew that training would help me to recover and get rid off the stiffness, but I didn't want to train...
I did train and felt good about it...On Wednesday I was fully recovered, and the following day on Thursday I decided to go to swim after my 6.45-7.30am Kettlebell class and I felt terrible again...
On Friday morning 5.30-6.30am I trained BJJ and felt energy less, then did the spin class and felt weird, different, almost fainting...Carl my 7.30am client kept on asking me "are you all right?", at that stage I had to admit that something was wrong and I needed to stop and rest.
The irony was that during the spin class I forced one gym member to get out of the studio for 5 minutes as it seemed that He was struggling. Steve, the member in question came back to me at the end of the spin session and thanked me to stop him and ask him to go for some fresh air, as he was feeling really bad.
What is the take:Challenge yourself BUT RESPECT YOUR BODY, TRY TO RECOGNIZE THE WARNING SIGNS. We are NO machines, we can and should train Hard. We MUST REST CONSEQUENTLY!
