Week in Review | Home Sweet Home

This week started off pretty normally.  I did longer accelerations out of starting blocks on Monday (40m vs. the usual 30).  I got tired faster, but that was to be expected.  What wasn't expected was how sore and run down I still felt come Wednesday.  I ended up just listening to my body (and my coach) and taking the day off after warming up.   It was a strange feeling having so much time freed in my day.  After I finally comprehended I had nothing to do after warm-up, I sat there for a good minute to figure out what to do next.  It was a really strange feeling lol.  By Friday, I was feeling back to normal and got through my workout just fine, though.

VLOG | My Week With the Odd Couple

MOTIVATION MONDAY + MY GOALS FOR AUGUST 2015

I have to admit, the first thing that caught my eye when I found this quote was the author.  I've been (repeatedly) binge-watching season 2 of Bojack Horseman on Netflix, and in this season J.D. Salinger actually makes an appearance as a character.  So, just seeing his name under this quote made me smile.  The quote itself is a good mantra to have, especially when you hit rough times.  You've gotten as far as you have already, and survived trials and tribulations both big and small.  Don't give up.  You'll survive this, too.

Now on to this month's goals!
