*To my athletes, I’ll be reachable again Monday and we can catch up then.
Thought of the day: I’ve been on this pain piece for the last few days, mostly because this is where athletes go wrong.
It’s easy to stick with things when they are hunky dory, but when you have pain and discomfort it’s also easy to say “let’s take a rest day”.
Unless you came out too hard or too quick, which you will know by a drastic change in your training plan, rest days are rarely the answer. Often times, they are even harmful to your long term health.
Our bodies are designed to heal under load.
Active Rest Day!
Hour or so cardio and maybe a run.
Thought of the day: Pain is part of training. I know there is this softer gentler attitude that’s prevalent in today’s society, but leave that at the door.
This is not to say that we are masochists, but if you want to make change, you HAVE to stress the body.
Stressing anything comes with pain.
And, stopping when that pain hits often means you’ll never reach the goals you set out for.
We do not seek out pain for the sake of it, but when we hit that point, we can’t shy away from it.
We adapt, we work around it, or through it, but we move forward.
Life For The Better
Recast & Reforge is about reforging life for better. Just like steel, sometimes we need to breakdown who we are to forge something new. While we specialize in physical fitness, our mental state and how we go about our lives is inextricably linked to what we can achieve either in the gym, out on the trails, or just living our daily lives. You cannot tackle one without the other.
This site is not only about showing that there is a greater world out there to explore, but about motivating others to reforge their lives into something better, mentally, and physically.
Reforge your life for the better.
