Honestly I take the Crossfit Endurance approach to rest days (which is kinda don’t take them).
- Monday has a Crossfit WOD, Crossfit Endurance WOD, and Group run.
- Tuesday is a Crossfit Endurance Bike WOD, Crossfit Endurance WOD, and the local Crit Ride (you do a 1 mile loop, really fast).
- Wednesday; Crossfit WOD, Crossfit Endurance WOD, Trail Run.
- Thursday; Army PT, Group Bike Ride.
- Friday; Crossfit WOD, Crossfit Endurance WOD.
- Saturday, Crossfit WOD, Long Run.
- Sunday, Long Group Ride or Rest day.

I loved the video – you’re so happy :)

What was the name of the day planner you mentioned? I couldn’t work out what you said ;) I am looking to buy a new one.

Rest days are important and yes, muscles can weaken if you overtrain. Remember, the workout for the male body is not a fair comparison for workouts for women. Estrogen has a big play in connective tissue. The Q angle in womens’ hip to knees is an added concern for knee health in young women in addition to changing estrogen levels that affect other connective tissue.

I appreciate some of the guys giving pointers how to train. But their body doesn’t go through the ups and downs of hormones until later on in life. Most younger men can workout like steam engines. And in regards to trainers, be wary. Women experience a fluctuation in their ligament flexibility (laxness) due to hormones throughout each month and sometimes you are more vulnerable to injuries than others. I highly suggest researching how your workout — but from one of the females in the field. How to train, even during certain times in the month may be something that all women need to find out from a seasoned and well trained trainer. The most dangerous types of exercise is when the trainer assumes “one size fits all” and puts someone into the cookie cutter and in the process causes an injury.
If your trainer doesn’t have personal liability insurance then most likely they are not certified to be provided that insurance.

Thank you Mom. This is really true. I’ll definitely keep that in mind and be careful with my joints — avoiding injury is essential. I love you!

I totally talk to my car too. I go to school in the mountains and I always give my car a little pat after she trucks it up a steep hill.
I struggle with my veggie consumption during long school days too. I’ve been trying to pack more veggies but they take up lots of valuable backpack space. I try to pack a big salad for lunch and then roast up some more veggies to eat before I got to bed.
