Well today I engaged in a pathetic attempt at strength and agility training. It’s been almost three months since I last did one of these routines- and it shows. I could only handle about 8 minutes of the 15 I had planned. Heck, I didn’t even get to the turkish get ups! Instead I got through one cycle of agility ladder drills (tougher than you might think), bear crawls, more agility ladder drills, and sand bag lifts, press, and slams (two minutes of each). At that point I felt like I would fall over and die. Luckily I didn’t.
I am hoping that it two or three weeks I can hit the 15 minute mark. I just don’t want to push myself back into this too fast and end up sick again. So I will probably add 1 minute per training session (or about 2 minutes per week).
Keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I battle the inevitable depression of realizing how far I’ve fallen and how much work I have to accomplish just to get back to where I was three months ago. Sorry, that was my pessimistic side speaking.
