I don't have a very good memory. Or at least I don't think I do... but then again... maybe I do and I just forgot. Anywho, I had forgotten in the last couple of months how much I enjoy a good brick. As always, Liz never disappoints with the workouts she sends me. She has a way of structuring workouts... even workouts on the trainer... that keep you engaged and challenged... making the time fly by. The challenge at the moment is that everything is "base" oriented. All good stuff... and more than necessary but we all like to go fast right?!
What I've noticed in the short time that I've been back on the training band-wagon is how strong I feel. Then it occurred to me that all I've been doing is RESTING! For the last two months I haven't done anything to stress my body... with the exception of massive amounts of food... mostly from the "sugar" food group. Speaking of which, I have a friend that basically made it through the entire holiday season withOUT sugar. Seriously. Is that NUTS or WHAT??? She's a total bad-ass in my book! So anyway, I feel really really strong right now. Give me a week though... I'll be a wreck and you can all laugh at me.
SO... yesterday consisted of an hour and a half on the trainer followed by a 15 min run off the bike. Nothing remotely taxing... but just getting my body back into training mode and used to the saddle a bit. Today... a killer core and strength routine that MIGHT actually result in me getting a bootay. Yeah... I'm serious.
That's ANOTHER thing about Liz... she's pretty much figured me out... slow and steady build. Keep me healthy. "Build a strong Rob". I constantly remind myself to trust Liz... and trust the process. She knows what she's doing and if I'm a good boy... and do as I'm told... and I'm honest with her about my aches and pains when they occur... she'll be able to get me where I want to be come June 21st.
Hope you're all happy, healthy, and whole.
OH! A note on injury... not that I'm an expert... but listen to your body. If something is screaming at you to stop... just stop. Go see the local expert on whatever is bothering you... and be patient. In the long run... getting on top of it will pay off. Think long-term... not short. Thanks for listening.
