so i did the Max Interval Plyo yesterday (today’s workout), so i did yesterday’s workout (Max Interval Circuit) today! i’m really feeling the effects of Monday’s workout – first day back soreness. i usually really get the muscle aches two days after coming back and this time round is no different. the calves were tight, the hips and knees didn’t get loose until half way through the workout and my lats are sore as all hell.
that’s the goofy thing about these workouts and the mentality of an athlete. why do i do it? why do i put up with all the pain, soreness and exhaustion? cuz i like being pushed, i like being challenged and i LOVE overcoming the adversity of the tough workouts. now my mental being does hold me back to some degree but that’s just another challenge for me to conquer. all this pain and slight discomfort, well, it let’s me know i’m alive. and that’s not touching on the obvious health benefits being in shape offers. i’ll save that for another day.
Day 44 Day 45: complete!
inspirational quote of the day:
“How do you go from where you are to where you want to be? I think you have to have an enthusiasm for life. You have to have a dream, a goal, and you have to be willing to work for it.”
