This Lazy Mouse Skips Her Weight Training To Build More Muscle
Thanks to less than 4 hours of sleep, I’m feeling like a lazy mouse today. How lazy? I pushed my morning muscle workout to Saturday.
Turns out it’s a good decision.
The bulk of muscle recovery happens during sleep. That’s when our bodies balance out the hormones and works to rebuild muscles. Lack of sleep just means the workout becomes much harder than needed and you increase the risk of injury.
So perhaps I’m more savvy mouse than lazy mouse…
Nah…I skipped my morning yoga class too.
Fear not. I slipped into my running gear for my next 5K training session, which starts in 15 minutes.
I plan to follow my run with 45 minutes of my Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga DVD.
I guess that makes me industrious mouse after all.
