Leisure time on Week 7.
After weeks of working out, increasing mileage, and sticking to an exercise plan, it is time to take a week to relax your body and enjoy some personal time. That way when you start again next week, you are motivated, energized, and ready to rev up.
Day 1: Cross-train with a light activity. Walking, playing tennis, or going to a slow-flow yoga class are great options.
