Question Split Critique

I was pushing myself a bit hard, definitely not as resilient as I was in my younger days. I know rest days are recommended, but I go in the morning and my day just feels off if I don't go do something at the gym. Works better than coffee in waking me up and getting me going. Old Split: Sun:...
