Resting that 1 in 3 times..
 
I think because Ive started CF now it's almost like an addiction lol! - I'm following 1 day behind the WOD's, as it fits in with my days off work for the rest days.. Which means today I should take a rest day. But I find myself not wanting to.

I know I HAVE to rest otherwise I'm going over the top with training and not letting my body recover, does anyone else find they have to force themselves to rest at times though?

If you don't rest, you'll bury yourself. Actually, you might bury yourself anyways, but that's beside the point. ;)

Yes, I find myself not resting... the key is to still get out and do something active. It's summer, there's plenty of stuff to do outside that will serve as "active recovery".

Play some ultimate frisbee, go for a dip in the pool if you have access to one, do anything but a WOD.

I've gone down the whole, maybe I'll just rest on Sundays road... it doesn't work in the long run. There is something to overtraining on purpose, but it's not advisable on a regular basis.

Agree there, I'll be doing a bit BJJ practice tonight so thats active rest enough ;) - I think It would be advisable for sure for me to take that rest day today being a day behind.. seen as I'm just settling into CF
