Post time of "Rocker" and weights used to comments.
Daily Extras - 20 min run. Note distance to comments.
- Soremaker alert!
- "Heavy" is a relative term.
We are coming down the home stretch. How you feeling?
Til now, I'm not sure I was far enough removed from it all to be introspective in a fair way about the last 2 1/2 weeks. I was just too tired, sore and ornery.
After backing off yesterday (did like 1/3 of the workout), I'm feeling much, much better. I've made a couple of personal observations about the past couple of weeks.
- My burpees have gotten better. I can string more of them in a row - more often.
- My lung capacity has improved.
- Ya'll inspire me to do better.
- Tab CAN be replaced by water. Sparkling.
- It might feel weird to go back to 20 min workouts again.
So far, those are my main take aways. I've got a few more thoughts, but I haven't organized them very well - yet. I put a few of my initial thoughts in the cue on our new podcast (coming soon).
If you'd have asked me last Wednesday, I would have said something like,
Yes, yes ... HELLth Wk X3 was great, but I'll probably NEVER participate again.
Then I remembered something. I said the EXACT same thing after every mountain bike and motocross race I ever participated in. In fact, I said it for weeks following EVERY event.
Have you had time to assimilate your thoughts? What are your take aways - so far? Please post to comments. Please follow up with more thoughts in a week or two.
Schneike! (GPP OK)
