You Never Know When You’ll Be Called Upon

I program rest days into my week. The minimum number of days I train (right now) is three.

Sometimes it’s more; sometimes I’ll add a sport, or an event.

The other day I ran a Tough Mudder. It was for fun, non-competitive.

The next morning, I was up early, deadlifting and running again.

It would have been easy to ‘count’ the race as one of my three training days for the week.

No one would have known. I could have rested the next day.

Except, everyone would have known.

There are no unscheduled breaks from training.

There are only unscheduled training days.

Why do I recommend that you take the same mindset with your training?

Because that’s the way life works. You never know when you’ll be called upon.
