I know that the word 'relaxing' to everyone means laying low, maybe sitting on the couch watching TV with some good food.
To me, relaxing means doing what I did this weekend. Friday late afternoon I went for a 3-mile run. It doesn't get any better then running on Grandview Avenue in Mt. Washington which overlooks the skyline of Pittsburgh.
Sunday I played tennis against my buddy DJ. He kicked my ass 6-0, 6-1, but the lateral movements in tennis and the constant running was a demanding workout and a great way to start my Sunday. Then it was back to Sandcastle for a few more slides. Let me tell you, jumping over the waves in the wave pool can be an intense workout.
It's Sunday night and I feel completely refreshed now and ready to start my resistance training again tomorrow.
