Strength: Today's first session wasn't about strength, but I will be focusing on that for the rest of my Shoulders/Hamstrings session (which is going to be tomorrow morning).
Vascularity: Per usual.
Quality of Training: HIIT was outside (love it), sprints all into a headwind. Doing less sprints that I have in the past, but the change is good. Still making sure I complete 20 minutes duration for the session, so finishing off just running . . . Resistance session was good. really feeling the burn. . . . I think the easy rollers' sessions after all my training sessions made a difference, especially with recovery, even if I wasn't doing my usual high intensity with it, and I am going to continue doing it this week to see what happens . . .
Recovery: I feel great!
Appetite: This is under control - man does it feel good to say that!
Body Composition and Look: Continuing my work in progress
Other Notes: The time you decide what you are going to be determines the pah you will take. "Of all the things one can become in life, I can think of nothing better to be than to be a Champion. A Champion is a WARRIOR. A Champion NEVER settles; never gives up; they through the blood, sweat and tears to overcome ALL obstacles placed before them. A Champion IGNORES the pain; they are the first to rise and the last to fall; they will keep on going until they collapse. Champion NEVER accepts defeat; 'failure' is not defeat, but a lesson on how to do better, how not to make the same mistakes. A Champion may fall, but they ALWAYS rise again, fighting back harder than ever. A Champion does NOT make excuses for their shortcomings, but pushes forward, turning their weaknesses into strengths. A Champion burns with the fire of determination and passion; they dare to dream, dreaming of the stars and REFUSE to accept anything less than such heights as they have set their eyes upon. A Champion NEVER backs down or strays from their path; they have a purpose and they will do WHATEVER it takes to achieve it. A Champion has a PURPOSE, forging forward, open to possibilities, forever testing themselves, challenging the 'impossible'. A Champion gives EVERYTHING they have to their cause, holding nothing back, persistently pursuing their goals, dreams and desires with a vengeance to be the absolute BEST that they can be." - Rosie Chee Scott, My Definition of a Champion Life Philosophy
