Well, it’s halftime and time to review our fitness game plan. After some reflection, I’m making a few alterations to my plan. I’ve suffered from fatigue this time around (just being dead-dog tired all the time) and need to change a few things in my life.
1. Cut out sugar. Eating clean is important and sugar is my crack cocaine. But it’s basically poison and my body pays for the instant high I get from it.
2. Run more. I only ran four times last month. I need to up my mileage. One way I’m doing that is running three laps before the workout. I’m going to start doing some evening runs along the way.
3. Push even harder on the stations. I’m in good enough shape to do the exercises. Now I need to focus on doing them right.
4. Drink more water. I think part of my fatigue is that I am constantly dehydrated.
Today was a good workout. Clark gave us the killer core combo with lots and lots of sit-ups. I did everything. Then we moved to Morgan’s station. Managed to chips and salsa all the way to the hash successfully. Ran with the weight, flipped the tractor tire and ran and did my pushups. My shoulder held up. In fact, today was a shoulder-intense day (with lots of bear crawls). But the real test for the shoulder was the weight room.
And it passed. In fact, I normally take a couple of ibuprofen before I workout. I forgot this morning and while the shoulder popped and was a little sore, it held up good.
It was a great way to start a Monday!
