THE CRUSADES - by dougal macdonald Chief Evangalist - Day 11

Early sunday morning, and today is a rest day. Rest days, doesn't translate to GUILT days. I've seen a lot of people feel very guilty about doing nothing. It's part of your program and your body needs rest as much as it needs exercise.

Your body does not grow in the gym...it grows while you are resting.

So if resting today is part of your plan take the rest and enjoy it with a clear conscious.

Go do something fun with your loved ones.

Have a Happy Sunday you too Dougal. Sit out back with your girlfriend and kiddos and drink lemonade. I took my free day yesterday, so today am out walking Dougal-style! Will let you know how far I make it today. Have planned 7.6 km....

Dougal, I think you've earned a rest day brother! You have achieved much in short period of time. Rest up my friend!

I am one of those people that feels guilty when he doesnt go to the gym. I feel like I am cheating myself, but then the logical and sensible me comes through and reminds me of what you said Dougal.

I followed through with doing something nice for someone today Dougal, it made my day, and I am sure it made that person's day as well.
