Your mind is the taskmaster, telling you how you need to exercise for at least an hour and how intense you should exercise or it doesn’t count and you should never ever skip a workout.
Your body may have other ideas. Your body may not be used to exercising for an hour or working really hard or getting up an hour earlier than usual. The truth is, your body really has to be the leader when you’re creating a workout programme.
That delicate balance between mind and body, doing what you need to do to reach your goals while doing what your body can handle, is hard to achieve, but one way to do that is to check in with yourself on a regular basis. Look at your workout programme and think about how it feels. Is it working for you? Do you enjoy what you’re doing? Or do you always doubt yourself? Perhaps you’ve been doing the same programme for so long it’s time for a change.
What do you think?
