Going back down – the guys in front talking about how to look normal.
- …and the talk didn’t work.
So now that the hike is over, I still have to stay it was a blast. I need to do it more – both when it’s colder and warmer. I LOVE being outdoors and I think I got the guys hooked for one last hike before it starts to snow.
Monday was my day off, and also a day to plan for the rest of the week. My gym clothes…and clothes altogether were scattered in different bags and parts of the room. I also went food shopping and grabbed some protein as we were all out. So last night I finally got home around 6:30ish, ate, cleaned, made protein drinks, made lunches, got ready for bed and I was fuckin out. Theres very few times I feel THAT completely drained. But I did get a lot done, so I’m excited to get back on track this week.
My diet hasnt been the greatest..I have to get more veggies in there, and stop being so stubborn about it. So today, I packed a huge chicken salad, bell peppers, green tea, frozen veggies, oatmeal, etc for the week.
TUESDAY – WTS + ACTIVE RECOVERY
My body doesn’t hurt too bad. It’s mostly weird places – like the tops of my feet, my shoulders, and the outside drops of my quads. I’m just getting over my period as well, so I think tomorrow I’ll feel a lot more rested & ready to push it.

Thoughts: I was tired today, well my body was. I pushed it still through sore muscles and negative thoughts. I wasn’t in the best mood, but I feel somewhat better. The first two days after either a big obstacle day, hike, etc, is always more disheartening because I don’t “feel” optimal. But I know I can’t always train when I feel the best.
I did this workout as fast as I could. I kept it between 30-40 seconds rest inbetween each set, and even did the SLDLs and Deadlifts together since the weight was so low. I think I like doing it this way for the first lifting portion of the week. The second day, Thursday, is heavier and less timed.
