Over the past three weeks, I've been training hard trying to reach some goals. I have had a renewed commitment to my training and an enthusiasm that has been lacking for several months (6-7 actually). I have had focus and have seen some great gains. I've been listening more closely to my body.
I hit the wall at the end of the week. I was tired mind, body, spirit. This past week brought long meetings, stress, and reduced hours of sleep. By Friday, my body was whispering "I'm tired." In the past, I would have just gone and done my scheduled training anyway. No more. I listened to that feint whisper.
There was no training on Friday, Saturday, or today. It's good. It was time. Monday will bring rejuvenation and a fire in my gut to get after more heavy pressing and dead lifting. It will be a productive week.
