Active Rest – Jacuzzi and Sauna

9/11 – God bless all souls and families struck by that tragedy. May we never forget the horrors humanity is capable of, nor the bravery and selfless dedication of those who stay ever vigilant at the front lines.

W11D4 – Active Rest

9am – Morning Swim + Jacuzzi

Notes: Was feeling pretty tired and aching everywhere so I decided to go for a 20 mins easy swim followed by 15 mins of relaxation in the Jacuzzi.

5pm – Yoga in the Sauna

Time: 30mins

Here is a recent article I read about this!
