I am glad that it is Friday! LOL! It has been a remarkably busy week for me, not counting my workouts. I was up early and worked through my morning routine in anticipation of my Tabata and Plyo workout. This workout is like the "capstone" workout for me. It is short, brutal, but sweet in its impact! I write this in spite of the fact that my quads are aching right now. LOL!
When I got up and took the dog out for his "business," it was 50 degrees. It certainly did not feel like the first day of winter. When I got ready, however, to get outside for my workout, which is ALL outside, with the exception of stretching, the wind had picked up and the temperature had dropped quite a few degrees. It was brisk and invigorating! I decided after the workout to brave the dropping temperatures and take a few new profile pictures. I was not happy with those I took on yesterday, so what the heck, I got out there and exposed myself to the camera AND the elements! I am waiting for the first snow of the season!
I have decided to enter the $100,000 Transformation Contest. The question is do I start this Sunday or wait until this current cycle is done in 3 weeks. That is a good thing about the contest. There is some flexibility on when to start the 12 week contest. It would be nice to get in there with a "fresher" workout cycle tailored to my goals for this contest. I simply want to improve my chest, back, and quads (bigger and better defined so as to look like I did in 2011). I will mull that over and make my decision by Sunday!
Other than that, I am wishing you and yours a great weekend! Those of you who are out and about, be vigilant and safe!
