ACTIVE REST DAYS: MOVE IT OR LOSE IT! If you catch yourself trapped in a series of chairs on your day off then you need to get up! Although your body needs rest, staying sedentary for too long will make your muscles feel stiff and immobile – which means when you get back into the gym not only are you likely to feel sore, you’ll be more apt to get injured. Try any of these intense to mild active rest options and keep moving.
- Yoga on the Esplanade
- Riding your bike along the Emerald Necklace
- Roller blade around Castle Island
- Walk the Freedom Trail
- Hike the Blue Hills
