Try Some "Scale Back" Weeks

We all need "scale back" weeks.

Believe it or not, they are important toward recovery for our bodies. This post from the Run Girl Run blog highlights why recovery weeks are good for us.

I recently had a recovery week that extended into a two-week recovery period due to a job transition. Sometimes our bodies need rest. Sometimes important issues come up in our lives that make it necessary to scale back in our fitness routines.

We shouldn't ever feel bad about "scaling back". We should listen to our bodies and give ourselves rest when needed.
