Friday, February 19, 2016 – Rest Day

Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. ~Ghandi

There are very few days when it’s tough for me to get out the door – rain, sleet, or snow.  Taking a day off, and worse, stretching, for some reason require tremendous willpower.  It’s crazy.  I always feel better after a session, and I know it helps, but getting on the mat is significantly harder for me than putting on the shoes. It’s almost like running is the reward for stretching.  I know when I don’t rest and/or stretch I end up with a forced resting period.
