Strength in Motion (SIM) Day 23: Week 6 Day 3

Thursday, April 02, 2009

What a difference a day off makes. After my 3 day marathon of SIM and aikido, I had only aikido yesterday, and so had a good chance to recover. I left today's workout until the p.m., and all together, these factors helped me have a very successful workout.

I'm very happy that my brother now has his workbook, as we are comparing notes on a regular basis, and it's helped me blow through some barriers and up my reps on certain exercises. This is a major benefit I was after with this program. Having someone who you've workout with in the past and you know how they drive themselves keep you honest--me anyway. I found myself looking at my workout sheet for the day and visualizing new goals on each set. I didn't always get the number I had in my mind, but I did get new personal bests, and in the end, that's much more important overall.

Tomorrow marks the end of a very challenging week 2 of the second month. I have learned a lot, particularly, do whatever I can not to skip a scheduled workout. Playing catchup is a great way to burn out, and I'm not into playing that game. Stay the course and reap the benefits.

Well, that's about it for now. Very happy with the learning curve and physical progress in size and ability, and have to remember that as long as I open the book and do the workout, my drive and body will take care of the rest. Enjoy what I do, and do it well!
