Itรขโ‚ฌโ„ขs Day 6 of 10 WEEKS TO FIT and we have our  first “Active” rest.  This means, although rest is important, it is still necessary to remain active on those days. The body, mirrors the mind, and needs stimulation every day.  Even after a grueling 5 day workout it is still crucial to get up and move.  Active Rest can consist of yoga, running, biking, hiking, swimming, or a combination of activities.  Today I will be doing 45 minutes on the stair climber and ending with dead belt sprints on the treadmill.

Lets get Ten-acious
