So many people said; “Come on! It’s a stat, take a day off!”
Why did I get up early and make sure I trained before getting in my day of fun on the lake? A few reasons…
A couple weeks ago I pounded out 2.5 hours a day on a stationary bike, 5 days in a row.
It was really hard.
But I did it.
Following that my “off day” training was also increased and really pushed the limits of what I thought I could do. My coach Andrew LoCurto at Aspire Health and Performance has been true to his word and gives what he gets. I push myself hard and he in turn pushes me harder and at the same time provides a safety net to make sure I remain uninjured and motivated. Why would I dishonour that hard work by taking a day off that I didn’t need? Trust me, rest days are important, but rest days do not always coincide with the Queen’s birthday!
These pictures may not be the most flattering of me, but they are the real. People need to know that the time you put in is hard, sweaty, and tough, but so worth it. If you walk away from your time training with your make up intact and no need for a shower, it might be time to reevaluate.
Plus I respect Andrew and what he is doing for me far too much to take a day off when he is ready, willing and able to train me.
If you are looking for some training, check out the “training camps” that Aspire is offering! They have a bunch of different ones, the price is right and it might open the door to a whole new outlook on what your body can do, and the benefits that come from taking time everyday that is solely dedicated to being the best you can.
I can’t wait to see you at Aspire!
