Reflections: feeling tired 2 days in a row is a sure sign that things are going downhill. I have suffered from over-training, which has sidelined me before for 6 months, so I made the decision to make this weekend and rest weekend and to take it easy in my Spinning classes. The Whole30 will be over in a week and my only disappointment is that I pushed too hard exercise-wise for the last month.  I have some big plans coming up: climbing Mt. Shasta and running a half-marathon in August, so I need to let my body heal before it is too late.

Sleep: good (7.5 hours)

OVERALL: my body spoke and I listened. I am looking forward to a weekend of watching Spartacus on the couch.
