I'm Listening

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.

Glad you are doing well. Listening to yourself one of the keys. As long as you are telling the truth LOL

Best results come after 4-5 days off. Relax, kick your feet up and enjoy the art of doing nothing.

When you come back, do a brief warm up and than slam some PRs. It will project your whole week forward knowing that when your fresh and on top you can keep shoving on.
