How many times have you gone home from a class, the gym or a long walk and slumped on the sofa, barely moving until absolutely necessary? Yes, I have too - and I feel it the next day. So the final piece of the post-work-out puzzle is to keep moving. Once you have had something to eat, kept hydrated and warm, now one of the best things to do is to stay mobile. You may feel tired, but hopefully it's 'good' tired, perhaps even with some added endorphins, so you might be feeling pretty well. Make the most of it and wander around, practise a move or routine that you perhaps hadn't mastered in class, or even just have a shower. It helps your muscles to stay warm and helps the blood to keep flowing, rather than pooling. You body will thank you for it for the next few days!
Next week, I'm moving the focus away from exercise and on to mental well-being, with a very exciting accompanying opportunity! Here's a photo to whet your appetite...
