First Plyocide in the books! Tomorrow is going to be rough. Things are going to be sore that have no business being sore, but that is to be expected when starting back on a regiment like P90X2, or any program after taking off a few months (or a year) 😉 The key is to push through the soreness and allow the body to become used to working out again, drink lots of water to flush out the system, foam roll to get that myofascial release from the muscles, and stretch to stay mobile. So looking forward to Recovery + Mobility tomorrow and getting into the pool for some “gravity relief”. Keeping the mind on task and repelling negativity is my goal. Its amazing how much negativity rears its ugly head when you are trying to get back on track, with fitness, nutrition, relationships, or anything you may be trying to work on in your life. Remember that you don’t have to go through it alone. I need to remember that I am not just a coach, but I have a coach as well. Reaching out to your coach, or answering their call might just be the thing you need to knock your ass back on course. I am so thankful for my very good friend and coach Mike Ryan. Just when I was feeling down on myself he texts me out of the blue and asks how I have been? This guy is super busy with his family and training new coaches and he takes the time to text me and ask how I am doing. I didn’t lie. I told him I felt shitty. And he didn’t fill me up with flowery bullshit to make me feel better. He just put it out there for me to hear. Was I listening? Yes. Here is the takeaway from that conversation:

“Beating yourself up for your past won’t change it. Just make this a one day at a time thing. Your focus is winning the day. Everyday.” ~ Michael Ryan

Thanks Mike for always keeping it in perspective!
