Where did 2015 go?! Apparently the new year is right around the corner, so I guess that means I need to start setting some goals.
Before we get to the goal setting, I wanted to share some updates in my life, although when I say “my life” I am pretty much entirely referring to my gym life…which is kind of my only life. I’m not mad about it.
Happy Friday! This is probably one of the most exciting Fridays of the year, because next week is a short week due to Christmas – I’m extremely lucky that my company will be closed from Christmas Eve through Monday, January 4th, which means I get the entire week after Christmas off!
Remember that one time when I talked about how everybody hates Tuesdays? Well, I would like to temporarily retract that statement, or at least have this particular Tuesday exempt from such a statement.
Normally, Tuesday is my rest day. However, when your friend/coach casually mentions the night before that tomorrow’s workout has deadlifts, which you haven’t done in a hot minute, sometimes things need to be rearranged. You know, for the greater good (gains).
In all truth, I probably should have taken a rest day as today was my 7th day in a row working out, and recovery is just as important to making progress as training is. I repeat: recovery is important and necessary. I don’t really have a good excuse other than I wanted to deadlift (…do as I say and not as I do). So I went to the gym at 7AM to lift things off the floor…and even had time to make coffee beforehand! You go, Tuesday!
