Catching Up

Where to even start? I feel like the entire month of July was nothing but go-go-go-go. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it’s been a very good kind of busy and I don’t anticipate things slowing down anytime soon. So let’s play a bit of catch up:

I’m working. A lot. It’s great and I genuinely like all of my jobs, so it’s not something I mind. I’m just still adjusting to a new schedule and trying to work everything in without losing my mind.  So yeah, I’m all about that #tupperwarelife.

We are almost at the end of our Strongman Summer Training Camp and I’m going to be so sad when it ends! Co-coaching this workshop series has definitely been one of the most fun and rewarding things I’ve done in a loooong time. Everyone has been making such great progress and it feels good to be a part of that.

While I’m enjoying helping others train, my own training has been so-so. I’m making progress and doing well on the things I need to improve upon but other things aren’t going so hot. I’m making a few changes to hopefully increase my recovery, help restart this weight cut, and basically help me not feel like death every time I squat.

I’m about to register for my CSCS exam, hopefully in October. Maaaay need to kick the studying up a notch.

That's how I feel at the end of most days. TIRED.

 

And now.....coffee. All of the coffee, please.
