The weekend was great. I did not do anything. I relaxed and slept for what felt like a million hours on both Saturday and Sunday. The weather was very cloudy and it rained on Sunday all day long. My body needed it. I have been exhausted and it felt really amazing. I did get a cardio workout in on Saturday, though I did not find it to be challenging. It is time to increase the intensity on those workouts, too. Next week, I will incorporate more equipment like battling ropes, rowing machine and box jumps. I want to make sure I am putting enough stress on my body so I will adapt and grow. I do not want to be too comfortable and not push myself. It never gets easier, you just get better.
With a new week upon me, there are new goals to be met. I will continue to juice and eat a raw vegan diet and will increase in my lifts. I am still taking cardio morning workouts off for now to ensure my body receives ample rest and recovery in between workouts. I am looking forward to my post workout shake this evening. Train big, eat big!
