Use Rest Days to Update Calendar

It's Chill Day — but Let's Plan Ahead

Welcome to your first rest day! But let's get something clear — chilling out means easing up from gas pedal, not taking a full-on break. We suggest a little light cardio to keep your momentum going and to get your blood moving, like a brisk walk, a short jog, or quick swim. But why not use this day off to plan the rest of your workouts for the month? Yep, make a bunch of fitness dates with yourself and you are way more likely to actually work out.
