Good days and great days only.

Having good days and great days, and that is, is a goal of mine. It's a quote I stole from the wall in 24hr fitness, but it makes sense, right? Why allow yourself bad days? Do what you need to do to change the source of the bad.

Workout 2011 Mar 3
5k Run

33:10 - ended up running past the 5k mark by 3/10 miles, was listening to music and didn't notice. I should be so luky to run further than planned anyway.

Massage time?

For a few days, my mid-back has been super tight and kinda sore. It's made it hard to fall asleep, harder to stay asleep, etc. The squats in the warmup = hurt, the run 400 in warmup was painful too. However, the SDHP were fine, broad jumps in warmup fine, power snatches no issues...wtf.... I have foam rolled and such a LOT this week and no dice. Massage time maybe?

Case of the Mondays got you down?

After a great weekend of servicing most of my technical diving gear and then doing some fun dives on Sunday down at the Comal River, it was a rough start to the week, when earlier than I planned to wake up, my cell phone started ringing...ugh. Here's a nice workout to help you forget the work-day. I did not enjoy it, but I feel much better now :)
