Monday Workout of the Day

This day was pretty tough to keeo on my schedule, but somehow I found to fit at least 5 strength movements in during the day. My shoulder was killing me, and my body was breaking down, from a cold that I now have. I should have read my notes from the last week, and seen the the tell tale signs of overtraining, and not getting enough rest. I needed sleep, so I took Tuesday morning off from training, and let one of my other trainers take the morning classes. I feel a little better, but my shoulder is still sore, so just going to continue to rest from conditioning workouts, and see how it feels over the next week, before I make the call to go to the doctors and get it checked out. Overtraining is my downfall, and sometimes hinders me in my performance and reaching my goals. I have to learn to rest and listen to my body, before something like this happens again. It is a recurring act, and just have to learn from it.
