Been everyone else!

I love this poster of Steve Prefontaine. He really was one of the greatest athletes to ever live!!!

Sometimes when you are juggling so many things at one time, many of the things we enjoy doing (like blogging)get put on hold. Been a busy couple of weeks. Work schedule has definitely picked up and my responsibilities seem to keep growing(which isn't always a bad thing.) I took last week off from training as I felt awful all week. Maybe a low grade infection or virus. I've been battling something that is for sure and it hasn't been fun. My response to exercise has been very poor which tells me their is some underlying health issue that needs to be addressed. Maybe it's increased stress or a nutritional deficiency? I'm not sure, but I plan on finding out. Overall this week I feel much better, thank God. This week is a very LIGHT week of training to help me slowly come back. I need to listen to my body, especially on those days when I see 8 + clients per day.

On Friday I am off to Phoenix to take a NMT (Neuromuscular Therapy) course for three days on all the muscles of the pelvis and torso. Should be fantastic!

Training Today:

Multi Directional Lunges (5 different angles)w/barbell
2 sets x 10/10 (2 per angle)

Pull Ups

TGU w/20kg

2 sets x 2/2

Single Clean and Press w/20kg
2 sets x 5/5

That's it for now. Off to Phoenix to learn!
