Rest and Recovery

Many people who see my kids running around comment on their energy. I think I know where they get it, or at least part of the story. They go to bed every night by 8 and get up by 6:30. It's a simple thing but getting enough rest is a key ingredient to good health.  This is especially true if one is in training. Remember during recovery is where we get stronger. The workout wears you down and causes your body to rebuild stronger than before. It is only with rest can we recover from the work. Never downplay the importance of sleep.

For some reason Clarence didn't care much about the ball this morning.

But there he is going for another round! Atta boy!
