We would all like to think we can do everything, just grit our teeth and keep going and probably make any potential injury worse than it already is, which then of course slows down the whole recovery process. I guess with the discontinuation of boxing on a Tuesday morning, I have actually been having a sleep in and getting around 7 - 8 hours sleep a night (which for me is a really strange concept and it would be nice to do this on a daily basis but I dont). In my head I want to get up and do something, but I know that my ankle or knee will not get any better if I continue to run on it.
Resting is a major contributing factor to any training schedule, allowing your body to fully recover and build on any high intensive training conducted. Building muscles and maximising my body repairs with a combination of sleet, stretching, hydration and self massaging techniques. Enduro is only 2 months away and of course, I want to minimse any potential future injuries that may occur.
