Today was a rest day, which is good because I also worked 15 hours today. The good news is that I have two field sites here that are each about a mile from my hotel. I intentionally don’t rent a car, so I spent a decent amount of time today walking in between them. Even on my rest days I try to remain active. “Rest” just means that I’m not doing any intense workouts and I’m giving my body a chance to recover from the last one. My body can still recover while moving normally, so I try to fit in some type of moderate activity whenever I can.
