I regularly (daily if there's wind) kiteboard, and am involved in other sports, so after the filthy 50's yesterday (yes, I'm behind) my legs are extremely sore. Today's the 5K.

How do you guys (and girls) judge whether or not to take a day off, or do an "active rest" instead of going all out? I just worry that I may be chickening out by lowering intensity...

Skylar,

I don't usually find muscle soreness to be a good indicator that I need a day off. Unfortunately, I'm not good at judging and usually discover that I needed a rest day about half-way through my workout. I'll take a rest day the next day if this is the case. I know if I skipped WOD's when I was sore, I'd be on a 1 on, 3-4 off schedule!

I agree that soreness is not a good indicator. However, as I began the 50's, I was feeling weak even on the first exercise (box jumps); I nearly missed the box a few times due to near muscle failure. This is probably because I was out kiting for 12 hours over a 2-day period, and was under-recovered from that before beginning CF again. I was just wondring how others who regularly play other sports judge when to take it down a notch.
