I've been exercising for 5-6 days per week. Last weekend, I had intense & long exercise every day (3-6 hours per day for 3 days), and I haven't been able to convince myself to workout since. Normal?

Why would you be surprised your body would want a rest after that? When you get back to it you’ll feel strong. Don’t overdo it. No need.

Ummm not normal that you had between 9- 18 hours of intense exercise over the span of only 3 days. That just seems way too extreme. You’re probably going to be spent mentally and physically for a while. Unless you normally work out that much/that hard for every workout?

Ease into it, going hardcore in the beginning makes it feel like a chore

Thanks all. I am not new to exercising and last weekend I was testing a special training. Will try to hit the gym tomorrow and start with a light exercise.

It’s called recovery, and quite normal. When I tested my black belt for Krav Maga, it was 2 days of about 7 hours of intense activity. I did nothing for about a week after, other than my bicycle commute to the office

What kind of exercise were you doing? What kind of cross training do you do?

Sometimes mentally we overdue it thinking we’re going to get some amazing result or outcome. When that doesn’t happen (bc how could it realistically) it makes us discouraged. Is that how you could be feeling?

I never do this but I need some objective advice. My wife is 5mo pregnant and my sister is getting married. Wedding was adjusted because of COVID but she set the date knowing I might not be able to attend as I’d have to fly there. Now I’m conflicted because if I attend, I’d have to quarantine for 2 weeks away from my wife and miss a couple DR appts. I’m her only support where we live. Would be stressful for her but I’m getting immense pressure from my parents to attend the wedding. Advice?
