Stretch 20 min.
Mood/Aggression: It's a brand new day, brand new week - another chance to make things HAPPEN!
Energy: My uplifted and positive mood seems to be making me light, gifting me with energy
Mental Focus and Clarity: I know where I want to be and how to get there from where I am.
Stress: The highest it has been in a long time, actually - it's just that I am choosing NOT to let it bother me; a small victory!
: I could have KEPT running this morning.
Strength: Changed it a little, to take the focus AWAY from strength and getting to the point where the burn was so bad I could not do any more reps for that set.
Pump: Surprisingly, in my TRICEPS.
Quality of Training: HIIT Run was good. I am doing less sprints at the moment, focusing on making every sprint to the point where I want to collapse afterwards, gasping in air to breathe. I'm pushing myself hard enough to taste blood, so that's a start . . . Resistance session I was pleased with. Probably going to do a slightly lighter than usual and then a heavy one on the days I do 2-a-day resistance trainings . . .
Recovery: I feel great
Other Notes: Sometimes I lose sight of what's important, driving rather than being driven, but I always return to my roots. No more drifting in ANYthing from now on, though!
